For the last two years, Larry has been involved with the RAF and the New Mexico Pilot’s Association (NMPA). He is Chairman of the New Mexico Recreation Aviation Committee of the NMPA and has headed up their efforts to reopen several backcountry and recreational airstrips.

Larry has been married to his wife Holly for over thirty years and they truly love living in New Mexico. Holly and Larry live in Los Lunas at the MidValley Airpark (E98). In addition to his wife Holly, he has four children, (1 girl and 3 boys), ages 11 through 20.
New Mexico has a number of great backcountry destinations, and with the help of the RAF and NMPA, he is excited about the possibility of adding new destinations to that inventory. He looks forward to meeting all RAF members in New Mexico!
