Greg Jacobs-New Member in 2022
Greg Jacobs joined MDPA in May, 2022 and comes to us with 54 years of flying experience. He received his Private Pilot certificatae on January 10, 1969. Greg currently holds a Commercial certificate and flies a beautiful Mooney out of Buchanan Field. Greg’s Mooney is hangared on the West Ramp.
He is a passionate flyer and got into it because he loves flying and that his dad was a B-17 captain in WWII.
Greg has flown numerous single engine aircraft over the years. The writer concludes he has a connection to Mooney aircraft since he has owned 4 Mooney aircraft, including:
2 C models,
1 J model
and his current R model (an Ovation).
He has also spent about 400 hours flying right seat as co-pilot in several Cessna Citation models:i.e., Citation I, II, III, V and VI.
Greg’s favorite memories from flying were an 11 day cross trip to see as many of the airports within the United states as he could. His earliest memory about flying happened when he began flying in 1969.
He loves being airborne above everyone and enjoying the great view as he traverses the terrain below the airplane. There is nothing he dislikes about flying, except perhaps an engine failure. Greg, everyone in MDPA agrees with you. Especially those of us who have indeed experienced an engine failure.
Greg enjoys spending time at Lake Tahoe, which is a short flight from the Bay Area. His second favorite destination(s) are the backcountry strips in Idaho. Most likely in the Frank Church Wilderness Area.
Greg has flown over 4,000 hours as PIC since 1969.
Other activities that Greg enjoys

Trips with friends.
Greg has expressed an interest in volunteering time to MDPA. Let’s get him involved!
