James “Rocke” Tyler | A&P IA, Private Pilot
Ever since I can remember, aviation has been apart of my life. I am a third generation aircraft mechanic and a third generation pilot. I was taught the skills to be a good mechanic by my father, restoring and maintaining his aircraft. I honed my skills and abilities while working at Tinker A.F.B on E-3s as well as my own aircraft that I restore. Aviation is a part of my fabric, it is part of who I am and what I do.
My current project is a 1946 Funk B75L.
