If you’re a regular reader you know I love airplanes and flying. Last summer I met John Klatt at the Reno Air Races. John is an extraordinary aerobatic pilot. After his show, my son Jack and I said hello and took advantage of a photo opportunity. I really appreciated the time and attention John gave Jack and anyone who met him. We’ve since had the chance to talk by phone and I’m further impressed by his professionalism and creativity. To watch John in action, click here.
In my book The Encore Effect I tell the story of how I became interested in getting my pilot’s license by watching legendary Bob Hoover fly an air show in Dayton, Ohio. The kind of flying done by pilots like John and Bob is the ultimate product of preparation, practice, performance and polish.
