Wayne Handley

Wayne Handley's 41-year and 25,000-hour flying career has taken him from cropduster to legendary air show performer. Later in January, he'll attempt a world record for time-to-climb in his new Turbo Raven, a unique airplane with more thrust than weight and the ability to use inflight reverse thrust. In this month's Profile, Handley talks with AVweb's Joe Godfrey about learning to fly, naval aviation, crop dusting, the new airplane, and the challenges of travelling the airshow circuit.
