Machinist Donald E. Runyon, USN

All of the pilots participating in the Tailhook Legacy Program are experienced warbird pilots with hundreds of hours of experience in the aircraft they fly.   All of these pilots train at NAS Lemoore during the winter with the active duty TACDEMO pilots that they will fly with during the season.  Once approved by the Commander, Naval Air Forces, they are the only pilots who can fly in a Tailhook Legacy Flight.

Once the Tailhook Legacy Program is back in the air and the civilian pilots are qualified by the Commander, Naval Air Training, we will list them here.
