Jon Melby began his journey with flight at the age of 8 years old. Gathering leaves from his front yard during the fall season, he piled them up close to his roof. He grabbed a ladder and climbed up unto the roof of his home. All the neighbor kids came by to watch what Jonny was going to do. He then initiated his world of flight by jumping off the roof into the leaves. His career as an airshow pilot had its beginning.
Jon watched legendary airshow pilot Bob Hoover and Art Scholl perform
Rode his bicycle 40 miles in the July Arizona heat to learn to fly gliders
Bought a Cessna 150 airplane and earned his private pilots license in 3 weeks
A dream accomplished by becoming a certified airshow pilot.
