Be honest, how many of you have a bucket list item that incluces logging a flight to the North or South Pole? This week's guest, Art Mortvedt, an Alaskan Bush Pilot, has been to Antarctica more than 20 times. With over 6,000 hours flight experience and 6 seasons of scientific logistics in the North Polar ice pack. Art had the SimpleFlight crew in the palm of his hands, as he regaled Marc and Rhonda with his adventures and experiences that very few of us can speak to with any level of expertise. This is truly a man that follows his passion, and there is no sign of slowing down.
Art is an elected member for the Explorers Club, New York, and a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society, London. He has studied the traditional life-style of the Inupiat Eskimos and other traditional cultures in South Africa, Australia, the Cook Islands, Greenland and the Falkland Islands. Be ready to think big when it comes to your future flying goals. The bar has been raised.
Marc shared his experience in getting to and experiencing the Eclipse in Carbondale, IL (KMDH), and also checked off a new aviation experience, by riding right seat in a Jump plane. Rhonda gave us the good word that she passed her Aviation knowledge exam with flying colors. We expect no less!!!
Enjoy the show!
We hope you enjoy listening as much as we love talking to others who share our passion for aviation. Let us know what you think!
BLUE SKIES and TAILWINDS!!!
