Larry Grismer, Pilot (Dad)Larry Grismer (Dad)

Jeff’s dad soloed at 13 years and 2 weeks of age in a 125 h.p. Kinner-Fleet bi-plane. He taught Jeff to fly just as his dad (Grandpa Lee) taught him. In 15,000 civilian hours (without an autopilot) and flying Douglas B-26 Invaders in the Korean War, he's pretty much flown it all.
 
 
 
Grampa (L.L. Lee Grismer L.L. Lee Grismer (Emeritus)

Grandpa flew Sopwiths and Neuports in WWI because it provided room and board. After WWI he barnstormed his way from Kansas to California and created the first flight school on the West coast. It is rumored that he helped teach Wrongway Corrigan to fly (but not to navigate). He test flew for Jack Northrop in the 30's and was chief purchasing agent for Northrop Aircraft during WWII. Without Grandpa we wouldn’t be here doing what we enjoy!
