Hard at Work
Dale C. Wolfe
Having survived over a dozen real emergencies in his 30+ years in aviation, Dale C. Wolfe has inadvertently used up many of his 9 lives. Graduating Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1993, Dale spent 3 years as a full-time CFI and Assistant Chief Flight Instructor for ERAU before moving on to Trans States Airlines as a Captain, Check Airman, and Instructor on the British Aerospace Jetstream 31. Hired by Trans World Airlines in 1998, he was a Flight Engineer on the Boeing 727 and a MD80 First Officer for 4 years before beginning a 13-year furlough after 9/11. During his furlough, he flew as a Captain for Murray Aviation (National Airlines), Spirit Airlines, and Virgin America. In 2015 Dale returned to American as a B757/B767 pilot and an Airbus 319/320/321 Captain. Dale is furthering his aviation knowledge and experience by hoping to stand on the shoulders of the giants who came before him.

*Okay, no type in the B17, but did get a ride in one during a Veteran's Day formation flight with Heinkle 111. Love to get one, though.
Lynn is currently a student pilot and a professional photographer. Her work can be found on wickedinnocence.com. She enjoys playing Borderlands and anything that involves travel and photography. Her goal is to solo in the Skybolt.
