Dave Long Flying Commercial Maneuvers for King Schools

My flying career started in about 1962 when I was living in Washington, Indiana and working at the radio station as a disk jockey / announcer.  My program did not start until 6:00 Pm so I had all day to mostly do nothing and there was a lot of nothing to do in Washington.

I was driving around in the country one day before going to work and spotted a sign that said AIRPORT and so I thought that was interesting so I turned in and what happened next changed my live forever.
