Hans and his wife Betsy have been passionate and enthusiastic pilots for many years. They own a Cherokee and also Hans favorite, a motor glider, both based at Palo Alto Airport. The controls have been converted so he can fly with his hands only. (I am sure for many of you that are rudder challenged, you probably wonder why all airplanes aren't rigged this way).
Recently Hans got a service dog, Rilla, who now goes everywhere with him and is his flying companion. If you feel like I do about my dog, what a great thing to be able to take your dog everywhere, especially flying. I hope she likes Mutt Muffs, those cute ear protectors for dogs.
