Clifford Obara - 3 posts

I am a 32 year old Kenyan, trained for my aeronautical engineering diploma in Kenya before getting my PPL and CPL in South Africa. After that, I returned to pursue engineering at various companies before finally settling into to flight instruction. My instruction career started with me investing in a simulator since the entire country was operating on ONLY one sim and this was not acceptable to me. Over time, it has been upgraded to a fully fledged flight school or what they call here an ATO (approved training organization).

Michael Little - 3 posts

Michael R. Little is a retired USAF navigator who now holds a private pilot certificate and flies his own 1958 Cessna 172, which he won in a raffle for $50. He received his bachelor’s degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Florida, and an M.A. in History from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He coauthored "T-41 Mescalero: the Military Cessna 172" with Walt Shiel and Jan Forsgren and has written a number of articles which have appeared in publications such as Air Forces Monthly, Air University’s Air & Space Power Journal, Aviation History and Kungfu Qigong, as well as on the websites of the Latin American Aviation Historical Society and China-Defense.com.

John Belz - 3 posts

John Belz grew up in Philadelphia and moved around the U.S.A. a bit before settling in Salt Lake City. Now he is a physics professor at the University of Utah, and in addition to teaching courses at the U, John does research in the field of particle astrophysics using an observatory in Utah's West Desert. John's interest in flying dates back to his teens. He joined the Air Force because he wanted "to fly jets", but his failure to maintain the necessary haircut delayed his pilot training for almost thirty years. Finally, on 9/9/9 he completed his checkride and became a certifiable pilot. John considers himself the luckiest man alive, with a great job, great hobbies, a wife and partner Kolaleh who keeps him laughing and a stepdaughter Niki who tolerates his eccentricities in exchange for flight time. He is looking forward to contributing his perspective as a scientist to the Disciples of Flight.
