I have been involved in aviation and the National Stearman Fly-in my whole life. However, my family ties to the fly-in goes all the way back to its inception as my great uncle Jim Leahy was a co-founder of the fly-in. My family and I have owned a North American AT-6 “Texan” since 2007 and our Stearman since 2017. I am currently employed with Jet Air, Inc as an aircraft salesman and a flight instructor. When I’m not working or flying, I enjoy watching the St. Louis Cardinals and tinkering with the Stearman.
