Speaker Profile: John Sessions' passion for aviation began with a spontaneous visit in 1983 to a flying club at Boeing Field. He got interested, started flying small Cessnas, graduated to bush planes, and then added floats. After “about twenty trips to Alaska at a hundred knots,” John moved to corporate jets and received his Airline Transport Pilot license with a single-pilot rating in the CJ series. Several thousand hours later, the call of fast stick-and-rudder pulled him into the world of classic Warbirds. Today, he flies P-51B “Impatient Virgin” whenever weather and schedule allow, and he's rated to fly most of the HFF aircraft collection—“most” will soon become “all.”

He's had some exciting moments: “A couple of engine failures, an engine fire, and a broken tail-wheel all rank right up there.”

Over the past five years, John has been devoted to acquiring and restoring the HFF collection. He considers himself a trustee of “precious icons that fly.” Kilo-7 reflects his desire to share aircraft guaranteed to spark passion and inspiration.
