Coffeehouse Lecture Series – Travis Williams

February 4, 2020 @ 7 p.m.
Multipurpose Room

Chief Flight Instructor Travis Williams tells all of his instructors that “the students’ job is to try to kill you. Your job is to not let it happen.  That is how they learn.”  He lives in a world where things have to be spelled out and followed precisely, where it truly is a matter of life or death.  This is a world he has been in since he was a little boy.  His grandfather was a plane owner and pilot who took Travis up all the time in his plane.  “Flying to me was just part of everyday life,” says Williams.  He will share his love and experiences of many years of flying.
