From the time Craig Schulz, 60, built aircraft models and briefly flew his Cox U-Control Curtiss P–40, he wanted to fly. The P–40 model was wrecked by a friend of his father, Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz, shortly after it was purchased.

Pilots: Fran Bera

Pilot Magazine | Aug 01, 2013

It was June 23, 1955, my seventeenth birthday, as I nervously began taxiing the Aeronca Champ in which I was taking my private pilot checkride. Fran Bera, the designated examiner, sat in the rear of the tandem cockpit, observing my every move. Mine was only one of more than 3,000 flight tests she would conduct, and my examiner was to become one of the most successful woman racing pilots of all time (if not the most successful).

When Vladimir Lange first soloed in the early 1970s, he was a young medical-school student at Harvard.

Pilots: Spencer Suderman

Pilot Magazine | Aug 01, 2012

Ask Spencer Suderman why he is an aerobatic airshow performer, and he’ll tell you straight out: “Because I’m a narcissist. I like people to watch what I do.” He’ll tell you that with a self-deprecating grin and a twinkle in his brown eyes because, although he talks a big game, he’s actually a big, fun-loving softie who was nauseated every time he went under the hood while working on his instrument rating.

Pilots: Terry Bryan

Pilot Magazine | Jul 01, 2012

Early one morning, the day before Veteran’s Day, I received a phone call from my friend Terry Bryan asking if I could be at the Sunport in Albuquerque in two hours. Standing by two hours later, a sleek Cessna Conquest II taxied up with Bryan at the controls.

Stuart Powell's first job was as a part-time line boy at Goodall Field, just south of Danville, Kentucky, where he took flying lessons in the afternoons and would occasionally taxi a Piper J¿3 Cub around the field on the evenings when the manager left him to close. He got a little faster each night and would sometimes get airborne, chopping the throttle before the tires of the perky yellow Cub got too far above the grass.
