Today’s Flight Plan

Today we’re joined by Dave. Dave has an amazing story in aviation. For years he was part of the US Army’s Golden Knights Demonstration Team. The Golden Knights perform perhaps the world’s most impressive display of skydiving. With a rich heritage dating all the way back to the 82nd and 101st Airborne in WWII, Dave was a part of this crew for decades.

Now retired from the Golden Knights, Dave has taken on the role of CFI at Cape Fear Aviation and Flight Training. You can tell he, and as a result this flight school, are oozing with passion.

Learn about the incredible journey Dave has taken throughout the years, and how it’s now culminating in inspiring one aviator at a time through instruction.
