Joy of Flight: Military officer salutes GA

Are you up to the challenge of visiting all the airports in your state? It's a tremendous feat that doesn't have to be done all at once. Georgia Air National Guard Lt. Col. Jeff Thetford's passion for general aviation motivated him to complete a three-year journey to all 106 airports in Georgia — even with a few deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan stuck in there. "My advice to anyone would be to set a goal and go after it," said Thetford. "Lots of folks early on thought it was not doable." Read about Thetford's journey in " Military man salutes GA," the latest installment in the Joy of Flight. To submit a story about GA adventures, please send an e-mail.
