John Sessions’ passion for aviation began with a spontaneous visit in 1983 to a flying club at Boeing Field.  He got interested, started flying small Cessnas, graduated to bush planes, and then added floats.  After “about twenty trips to Alaska at a hundred knots,” John moved to corporate jets and received his Airline Transport Pilot license with a single-pilot rating in the CJ series.  Several thousand hours later, the call of fast stick-and-rudder pulled him into the world of classic Warbirds.  Today, he flies P-51B “Impatient Virgin” whenever weather and schedule allow, and he’s rated to fly the HFF collection.


He’s had some exciting moments:  “A couple of engine failures, an engine fire, and a broken tail-wheel all rank right up there.”


Over the past five years, John has been devoted to acquiring and restoring the HFF collection.  He considers himself a trustee of “precious icons that fly.”  Historic Flight reflects his desire to share aircraft guaranteed to spark passion and inspiration.
