Speaker: Hon. Theodore H. Limpert, Pilot and Judge, Syracuse City Court

Overview: Have you ever wondered how an airplane flies or how to become a pilot? Flying an airplane is a dream everyone can realize and is a lot easier than you might think! Explore the world of aviation, learn the physics of flight, and the different routes to becoming a pilot. Learn how airplanes navigate, turn with a force nine times your body weight and refuel in the air.

Biography: Ted Limpert had his first flight at 6 weeks old, soloed when he was 16 and now has over 5800 hours in the air. He became a Fighter Pilot in the New York Air National Guard, with seven tours overseas, in the Iraqi and Afghanistan theaters, having flown 106 combat missions in the F-16.

He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with valor for a combat mission in the Gulf War and flew an intercept mission on 9-11-01. He retired in 2012 as a Colonel, with over 30 years of military service. He is currently a Syracuse City Court Judge and flies his own small airplane.
