    My father and his brothers helped clear the land for Willow Run while Dad was attending EMU (then Michigan Normal). My best friends father was a toolmaker at the B24 plant. I attended an aviation merit badge course there and our reward upon graduating was my first flight in a DC-3. It was 1958 and my father had been a C-47 crew member who served in Europe so he came along as a chaperone. I’ve still got aerial photos of the Ford Rotunda taken with a Brownie Hawkeye. Later on, when I was in the Navy, I flew out of Willow Run for Charleston, SC and an overseas MATS flight to Ramey AFB in Puerto Rico. It was 1965.

    Dad learned to fly with the CPTP program in Ann Arbor in the late 30’s, then got drafted out of college in 42. I learned to fly as a teenager at the old McKennon field just south of Ypsi. My brother finished up his private certificate at Willow Run about 6 years ago.
    I’m a CFII and own Cirrus Flight Training in Camden, SC ( and come up there to visit my mother and brother about once a year during July. They live about 7 mi south of Ypsi in Whittaker.

    I don’t know what I could do to support the airport from down here, but if there is anything I can possibly help with, please let me know. My ties to the airport and the area are very deep and very strong. My brother Scott can be reached at 734 461-6103 if you’d like to recruit him into your network of pilots.

      Thanks for the comment! I’m still trying to figure our how to use this silly website. Thanks for volunteering. Right now, I attend monthly airport meetings and we have about 30-40 people subscribing receiving my emails. We have meet twice in 2011 for BBQs for meet and greets.

      I will phone Scott shortly. You do have a lot of history! Once again, thanks for the interest and I hope will will meet soon!
