A licensed pilot since 1989, Will Phelps is an avid flyer always ready for the quick trip for that “$100 hamburger or breakfast” with his flying friends. Phelps grew up the son of an Army Air Corps WWII veteran, which made flying a part of his life and formed a special father/son bond between him and his father. Phelps is a strong proponent of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA), the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and Young Eagles.
Phelps is currently an executive and 30 year veteran at a fortune 100 company. While corporate life has been good for Phelps, flying, and writing about flying, have long been his passion.
He and his wife, Lisa, have 3 children. They have lived in Arizona, Washington, California, and New York over the past 30 years.
