Bob is a commercial pilot with 10,000 hours of accident free service.  He purchased the assets of the former FBO in July 2013 and is bringing renewed energy and vigor to Avenger Field.  His 35 years of flight and instruction experience has given him a rich appreciation for what aviators want from an FBO and he is committed to delivering the same excellent service he so appreciated. 

He has loved aviation all his life, supports the local WASP museum, and promotes aviation to young potential aviators of the future.  Bob also is very supportive of EAA and those building and flying their aircraft.

continuous improvement

Bob is continually striving to make improvements.  He has the backing of the Sweetwater municipality and is inviting others from the local and surrounding communities to participate in activities on the field. 

In his opinion, Improvements do not always mean discarding legacy for the latest technology.  He believes in supporting many of the values and traditions that made aviation great and is eager to pass these on to others.  Bob is the first to admit, there is still lots of room for improvement around this historic airport, so he is taking it one step at a time blending in the new without destroying its historical legacy.
