For professional pilots the skies are home but, after four decades of military and aviation education experience, Ralph Gibbs has found his professional heaven here on earth in Eastern Kentucky University’s Aviation Program.

“This is the number one aviation education job in the country because it’s the only one where someone like me can teach both in the cockpit and the classroom,” said Gibbs, who left Oregon to become chief flight instructor in one of EKU’s most rapidly growing programs.
