Bill Boot, 79, earned his private pilot's license in 1971. His love of aviation began during WW11 when P38's and T6 trainers flew over his house on the downwind leg of Orland Airport. He went on to become a commercial and instrument rated pilot. His first aircraft was a 1963 Cessna 172 which he purchased in 1973. He went on to build an experimental airplane, a KR2, which was named "Bouncing Baby." He became a proficient aviator logging over 2000 hours.

The Quicksilver is a similar experience to the early days of aviation, with no cockpit, flying with just a seat and control stick. He was loved by his family and friends in the community.
