Local pilot receives FAA award for 50 years of flight
Pilot John W. Jameson pilots the Fieldale Corporation’s Falcon 2000LX. Recently, he received the FAA Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award in celebration of more than 50 years of aviation experience.
When John Jameson began flying planes more than 50 years ago, he never thought it would turn into a career. “It was just something I decided I wanted to do,” the 73-year-old Gainesville man said, noting he learned to fly in 1963. “Something that, once I started, I really loved it.”
