Bill was born in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. Now resides in Murfreesboro, TN where the water stays fluid all year around. He earned his Private Pilot's License in March of 1969. Bill holds a Commercial License with ratings in Glider, Airplane Single Engine Sea, Single and Multi Engine Land, Instrument and Certified Flight Instructor as well as an A&P License. Earned the seaplane rating in 1999 and has been a SPA member ever since.
He owns and flies a 1966 Lake Amphibian LA 4. He has owned it since 2004, has 1,030 hours total time and says that it is a joy to fly.
Major concern to Bill is to keep water ways open to seaplanes. He believes that this will only be possible if pilots are sensitive to lake property owners. There is a huge lakeside property development in the last few years and suggests that pilots avoid repeated takeoffs and landings in any one area, especially early mornings. Bill encourages giving rides to pilots at your local airports and encourage them to obtain their seaplane rating in order to enlarge the seaplane community.
