Dave Oglesbee

Like a lot of us, Dave Oglesbee's interest in aviation began with RC airplanes. His dad gave him a chance at the real thing, and Dave took it, becoming a private pilot, an Army helicopter pilot, a pilot for the Marion County, Fla. Sheriff's Department, and Chief Pilot for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Agency. He's now working to develop a system for recognizing the contributions of law enforcement associations around the country. In this month's Profile Dave talks with AVweb's Joe Godfrey about flying low and slow for the Army, flying prisoners for the Sheriff, night-vision training in Black Hawks, and spotting alligator nests from the air.
