Airline Pilot or CFI?

This brilliant sketch manages to encapsulate my daily life as a CFI in the wilting summer heat. At 8 a.m. I’m Dean Martin. By 8 p.m., I’m Foster Brooks.

Yes, it has quite a familiar ring to it, right down to the part about running an an hour and forty three minutes late for the next flight.

About Ron Rapp

I’m a Southern California-based pilot flying the Gulfstream IV, as well as a CFI-I/CFI-ME specializing in tailwheel, aerobatic, experimental, formation, and glass-panel flying. I’m also an aircraft owner, aerobatic competitor (Advanced category), and a National-level judge.

In my spare time, I enjoy writing about aviation topics via my web site. You’ll also find me at the theatre, opera, symphony, or perhaps diving in Sea of Cortez. Other avocations include boxing, hiking, and indulging in fine food and spirits with friends and family.

My wife and I live in beautiful Orange County, California with two evil — yet diabolically brilliant — Siamese cats.
