The Smothers Brothers Are NOT Pilots

by John M. White |

Back in the day everyone wanted to get their pilot's license. My early days in aviation were spent at Michigan State University flying in the "Winged Spartans Flying Club", and we had a lot of fun. At one point we had 5 airplanes which were kept very busy. I got my Commercial Pilot's Certificate at the club, along with my Certified Flight Instructor's Rating, Instrument Rating, Instrument Flight Instructor Rating and all of my ground school instructor ratings. Flying with some of the fixed base operators on the field I got my multi-engine rating, and instructing was fun, rewarding and busy. This was the late 60s, and it seemed everyone wanted to learn to fly. Today, however, it seems young people have little or no interest in flying, and that is a shame. Learning to fly is a great experience, one that should not be missed. Like Tommy Smothers: For all of you out there who are NOT pilots, you should think about joining our fraternity - you will be glad you did! Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
