    Richard Collins Begins 21st Year at Sporty’s with Launch of Online Column [printer friendly]
    With 20 years of working with Sporty’s under his belt, Dick Collins has turned his attention to writing an online column which will be posted at Collins will post on a variety of aviation topics with the same experience and insight he has shared with the GA community for the past 50 years.

    Collins was recently feted with a visit from Sporty’s staff to present him with a 20-year service award. Eric Radtke, Sporty’s Academy president and Bret Koebbe, vice president of video production, presented Collins with his award and thanked him for his invaluable contributions.

    Known equally for his many years as editor and then columnist with FLYING magazine as well as for his Air Facts™ series of video programs for Sporty’s, Collins’ many fans and followers will appreciate the expertise his thousands of hours of flying provide. Readers will be able to respond to Collins’ columns by writing online comments.

    Sporty’s recently published Collins’ book, The Next Hour, named for what Collins says is the most important hour in a pilot’s logbook. “It’s only the next hour that counts,” he says.

    The Next Hour [M459A] is approximately 190 pages and is soft cover. The book is available for $24.95 exclusively from Sporty’s.
