Classic Aero-TV: Keeping The Dream -- Aerobatic Pilot Greg Poe

One Of The Nation's Finest Pilots Was A Life-Long Flyer

Aero-Note: The late Greg Poe, who passed away several days ago after a heart attack,  was remembered in a memorial service that was held this week in in his beloved state of Idaho. The following Aero-TV story was played during the service and we hope that his friends and famiily understood through it how greatly we respected and admired Greg... and how much we're going to miss him. Out of the greatest of respect for this amazing flyer, we thought it fitting that we run this story again this weekend.

God bless you, my friend... say Hi to Vicki for me... -- Jim Campbell, ANN E-I-C.

Original Story (from 2009): There are few people, these days, that aren't QUITE familiar with the name of airshow pilot, Greg Poe. Greg is a native of Boise, Idaho and has spent most of his life there. He started his flying career at an early age and earned his pilot's license while still a teenager, flying out of the old Strawberry Glen airport along side the Boise River.

His flight instructor, John Chambers, introduced him to aerobatics early on and it quickly turned into a passion that continues to this day.

Greg's early flying was done in a variety of tail wheel type aircraft and he spent many hours at Idaho back country airstrips. After earning commercial and instrument ratings Greg became a flight instructor and has specialized in tail wheel training, aerobatics (from basic to unlimited) and has earned a reputation as one of the most knowledgeable advanced spin instructors in the country.

Greg’s love of aerobatics led him to enter competitions around the country, which enhanced his skills and understanding of high performance aircraft and eventually led to his first airshow performance in 1992. Shortly after, he became a full time airshow pilot and a main stay on the circuit, performing at 15 to 25 airshow events each year.
