Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. --Ronald Reagan

For a sailplane pilot, there is nothing more beautiful than a lenticular cloud. These beauties form as the west wind races over the Wasatch Front. They beckon me to the skies. But alas, my plane sits in a snow covered trailer, and the tow plane won't come out of it's hanger for a week or so. Ho hum. I'm stuck on the ground.
Warren is a new pilot who just got his wings on Dec 11, 2007. One of his flight instructors said of him, "He's the most aviation hungry student I've ever had!" Warren also loves music and plays trumpet, though he best loves the challenge of the piccolo trumpet. He retired from the Air Force in Dec 1999 and currently works on F-16 AIS test stations for the Air Force as a civilian.
