Humorist, Aviation Safety
Mark Grady, writer, commercial pilot and professional speaker pokes fun at his height (or lack of it!). In Flyin’ Friendly Mark shares with you the perils of being a ‘vertically-challenged’ pilot. How do you get the FAA to STC a phone book as a “pilot height extension device”? Combining broadcasting with his love of flying, he worked 10 years as a traffic watch pilot reporting for three radio stations.
He is familiar to North Carolinians, as a radio talkshow host, TV telethon host and television commercial personality. What Mark lacks in height, he makes up for in heart—and he tickles our funny bone. His relaxed friendly way of speaking is reflected in his writing for various publications including the Southern Aviator, Weekend Flyer, Wilmington Star-News and Jacksonville Daily News. Mark’s presentations include Why Did I do That?, Real World GPS, You’re on The Air, U.S. Aviaiton & Space Accomplishments, and Flyin’ Friendly.
