Hillis Cunliffe
“I started out as a child; really, my dad gave me my first airplane ride when I was 6 weeks old.  It was in a Stinson 108 Voyager in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. When I was 16 and had just finished my sophomore year in high school I was hired by A&H Flying Service at the Asheville Regional Airport in Asheville, N.C. as a line boy. They had a flight school where I flew and soloed a Champion Cantabria in 1966 when I was a senior in high school.  In March of 1967 I enlisted in the Air Force and left for Basic Training. I was originally trained as a crew chief and worked on C-54s, C-7As, and T-29s. I served for a little over 23 years and retired as a Senior Master Sergeant on August 1, 1990.  I had finally finished my Private Pilot’s license while stationed at Eielson AFB, Alaska in 1976. From mid-1993 through June 2001 I trained and earned my Instrument, Commercial, Multi-Engine, CFI, CFII and MEI ratings at the Maxwell Aero Club. I started instructing at the Maxwell Aero Club in the summer of 1997 as a part-time instructor.  I continued instructing there until it closed in early 2008.When the Aero Club closed I began instructing at Southstar Aviation, the forerunner of Box Aviation.
