Through the years

I cannot see my future without aviation in it. When I say that, one hundred percent of my heart goes into those words. Ever since I was little, I can remember running around the PROPS flying field and being mesmerized by all the different airplanes. I still feel the same joy and excitement that aviation brought me over 30 years ago, and my passion has only gotten stronger with time. I owe my wings to three men: my dad, Rodney Darling, who showed me his passion and the history of aviation; Raymond Swaney, who was always there to encourage me, and Bobby Finsterwald who has helped me to earn my wings. Time has changed since the 1980’s but the field, ┬áthe dreams and the guys who fly there have not.
