Bill Moyle started flying at the age of fourteen, He was an “Airport Kid” in Danbury CT. He and a buddy would ride their bikes to the airport to wash airplanes and sweep hangars for rides. His first log book entry was in the summer of 1962 in a 65hp Aeronca Champ. All of Bills flying has been civilian in nature using the GI Bill to acquire his Commercial, Instrument, CFI, Multi-Engine and a Citation Type Rating. Teaching the Citation GS in 1980 and 81. In 1986 Bill was hired by McDonald Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach Ca. and spent 4 years in MD-80 Flight Crew Training as a Ground Instructor specializing in Flight Instruments and Avionics. He was not only responsible for instruction but program development and served as the Avionics Team Leader. In 1990 he was hired be MGM Grand Air as a Boeing 727 flight Engineer. While there he developed the training program for TCAS. Bill spent 5 years with MGM on his beloved 727 and DC-8 until it became Champion Air. As a kid, one of his desires was to some day fly those two aircraft. He can scratch that off the “Bucket List”. While with those two airlines Bill was fortunate to have flown not only Domestic but International as well, spending time in Central and South America, South Africa, Europe, Australia, Asia and the South Pacific. Some of his favorite flying was his trips to the Caribbean. His wish some day is to write a book on his travels titled “I sailed the Seven Seas in a DC-8”, or ‘Midnight over the Indian Ocean’. In 2006 Bill joined FlightSafety International in Long Beach Ca. as a Citation Instructor, completing the cycle that had begun in 1979. He spent 2 years as the Citation Program Manager until his retirement in Aug of 2009. Bill is a retired Airline Pilot with over 13,000 hours in 28 different aircraft ranging from an Aeronca Champ to a Douglas DC-8-62, spent 10 years as a Captain on a Boeing 727 with Champion Air. He was also an FO and FE on the 727 and DC-8. While with the airlines he also served as a Ground Instructor and Check Airman on the 727. Retired now, Bill spends his days doing some light airplane flying and writing short stories. He is known for ending his correspondence and stories with a send off of “Blue Skys and Tailwinds”. He has relocated to North East TX, specifically the DFW area. Having spent 17 years, as he puts it, flying nothing under 197,000 lbs and seeing the world from FL350 doing Mach .80 he now wants to see it from 3000 ft doing 80kts. Bill is glad to descend, slowdown and get back to his roots. Bill was a member of EAA Ch 92 in SOCAL where he served as Vice president and Flight Advisor in 2009. He is now a member of EAA CH 34 in Arlington TX. He has served with the FAA as an Aviation Safety Counselor since 1986 and is a member of the FAAs FAAST team. He can now be found most Saturdays at the Midway Airport, KJWY, in TX, sipping coffee, sitting in a rocker, hangar flying and taking notes on his past and looking for stories for the future.
