Play • 55 min
Today’s guest, Chris Gray, has had the dream of flying since an early age.  He was inspired by his grandfather who decided to learn to fly in his 60’s.  He can still remember, at the age of 6 or 7, watching his grandfather and his instructor fly over the house.  He also got bit by the entrepreneurial bug early on, starting his first business at the age of 10.
Earning his pilot's license in high school, Chris ended up taking a few years off from flying while he attended college.  Getting laid off from a PR firm, Chris decided he wanted to get back to flying.  After earning his certifications in the course of a summer, Chris began working at a flight school before he decided to try his hand at owning his own flight school. He shares the ups and downs and how he ended up as first officer on a learjet.
