Review of Glider Accidents in Northern Nevada
Larry Cheek has been with the FAA for 21 years with the last three as the FAA Safety Team Program Manager. Previously, he was a Principal Inspector on multiple Air Carrier Certificates. He feels this is the best job he has ever had, as he works very closely with community pilots developing and presenting safety seminars to help the GA community reduce accidents. He previously retired from the U.S. Coast Guard as both a helicopter rescue pilot and a C-130 Transport Pilot. He also flew helicopter in Vietnam for the U.S. Army.
