Poquoson Pilot Honored for Five Decades of Accident-Free Flying

Comments Off

When you look up “responsible pilot” in the dictionary, Luther Knaub’s picture should be placed immediately next to the definition as a prime example. Luther, a resident of Poquoson, Virginia (VA) has enjoyed 50 years of accident-free flying as a recreational pilot, according to the Daily Press.

A record this impressive is rare. Luther is the 12th Virginia resident to be recognized with the award and the third in the Hampton Roads, Virginia (VA) area. Even more impressive is the fact that Luther is an Air Force veteran with 16,000 hours of flight experience including bombings over Vietnam and Vietnam.

"I’m thrilled and honored to receive the award," Knaub said. "It’s prestigious — not everyone gets to enjoy flying for as long as I have."

As an injury lawyer who’s represented people seriously hurt in airplane accidents, I understand the devastation associated with plane crashes so it’s great to hear about a pilot whose averted major injury while enjoying the skies.
