Retired USAF Colonel Glenn Whicker
flew the T-38 Talon supersonic jet trainer for several years, teaching student
pilots from all over the U.S., Europe and Southwest Asian countries in the
Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training Program (ENJJPT). He then transitioned to the
deeply classified U-2 Dragon Lady high altitude reconnais-sance aircraft, flying
well above the troposphere over the world's trouble spots. Colonel Whicker has
also flown several of the former Soviet Union's transport aircraft, including
the IL-76 Candid and the world's largest aircraft, the AN-225 Mriya.

JROTC program at Dixie High School has given teenagers the chance to live their
dreams by becoming private pilots under his tutelage while still in high school.
