Evan flies - Greg Colyer from
My friend Greg Colyer is a really great guy. He took my dad and I on a cool tour of the Air Traffic Control Center in Fremont which was amazing. Then about a month later we went up to meet him at the incredible Davis Flight Support where he keeps his T-33 called "Ace Maker". I got to check out that amazing airplane. Then we went for a ride in his Decathlon and we did some aerobatics, I got to fly most of the time, and I did the landing! He's a CFI and said I flew really well! (How cool is that?!)
After that, we sat down and I got an interview with him. I hope you like it!
