As Wing Leader of the “Low & Slow Squadron”, George flies “Lady Bird”, a 1948 Luscombe (and 1983 Reserve Grand Champion Classic at the Oshkosh national Air Show) …“stick and rudder” tail dragger flying.  He and Carol have hosted exchange students from around the world, and she has traveled to India and Africa for polio NID, wheelchair, dictionary, and Rotaplast projects. For the past decade, George has taught at PETS and has been responsible for training District Governors in the western United States.  He attended U.C. Berkeley, marched in the Cal Band, and graduated from Boalt Hall.  As Peace Corps volunteers in Liberia, West Africa, George taught law (where he first experienced real bush pilot flying) and Carol taught elementary school.  Since returning, George directed a legal services program and is now a shareholder in Littler Mendelson, a nationwide employment law firm representing employers.  Tail winds to ya’.
