“Next Oshkosh, I’m flying GA!”

The RAF is “saddling up” to shuttle Redbird Flight’s Charlie Gregoire from his home in Texas to Oshkosh departing July 20.

It all started after Charlie described his dreadful 33-hour commercial flight into Oshkosh last year in Flying magazine, declaring, “Next Oshkosh, I’m flying GA!”
