WARBIRD RADIO – Safety month continues this week with Stallion 51’s Lee Lauderback. Currently, Lee is chief instructor and demonstration pilot in the P-51 Mustang. In addition, he is also one of the pilots for the USAF Air Force Heritage Flight Program. Lee has also been a civilian instructor for the Navy Test Pilot School at Patuxent River, MD where test pilot students and instructors fly the Mustang.
Lee is a certified flight and ground instructor for airplane (single and multi-engine), instrument, helicopters and gliders, as well as being a FAA Pilot Proficiency Examiner and does acceptance flight-testing in various Warbirds, Helicopters, and Turbojets.
Amassing in excess of 20,000 flight hours in all types of aircraft and helicopters, including well over 8,700 hours in Mustangs, Lee has also had a chance to fly the F-15 Eagle, F-16 Viper, and F/A-18 Hornet. Lee has over 2000 hours in sailplanes and has competed in many soaring contests and has held several sailplane records.
Lee is also an accomplished master class falconer, and when not flying aircraft he can be found flying hawks and falcons. Tonight we’ll share one of our favorite safety month interviews with Lee recorded last year.
