Ron Rapp - The Making of an Aviator
Ron Rapp doesn’t really need an introduction. But if you haven’t heard of him, he’s a ATP-rated pilot with experience in more than 60 aircraft types, including tailwheel aircraft, aerobatics, formation flying, gliders, seaplanes, turboprops, business jets, warbirds, experimentals, radials, technologically advanced aircraft, and more.
Ron has logged more than 9,000 hours over the past 20 years doing a wide variety of things. He’s volunteered with Angel Flight, written mile-long messages in the air as a SkyTyper, crop-dusted with ex-military King Airs, flown across oceans in a Gulfstream IV-SP, and tumbled through the air in his Pitts S-2B.
His experience includes owning three aircraft (thankfully not all at the same time) and a long stint as an IAC aerobatic competitor up through the Advanced level. He’s also an accredited National-level judge and his 2,500 hours of dual instruction include teaching recreational and competition-style aerobatics to numerous students in the Pitts, Extra, Decathlon, Eagle, other such aircraft. He has a particular fondness for the RV series and has instructed in all the two-seat RV models. On the other side of the coin, he’s logged 1,000 hours in the Cirrus and Columbia/Corvalis series and is intimately familiar with wide variety of glass panels and FMS systems.
