Generations in the Sky
Meet the Flying Gormans
For Jim and Marge Gorman, two passionate, long-time pilots, aviation is a family affair. Three generations of the Gorman family have inherited the passion for flight. Jeff, their son, is a pilot who believes flying is essential to his position as the president and CEO of pump manufacturer Gorman-Rupp. Jeff’s sister, Gayle, is a pilot who flies frequently for her career in the airport lighting industry. Jeff's wife is a pilot, as is his son. His daughter is even thinking about taking lessons. In Meet the Flying Gormans, the first of a three-part video series, seven members of the Gorman family introduce themselves. Watch the interview from the family’s hangar at Mansfield Lahm Airport and learn how the Gorman family turned a love of aviation into an amazing family heirloom.
