Dr. Bertrand retired as Professor of Aerospace at Middle Tennessee State University in 2005, following 30 years as an educator.

John took his first flight lesson in 1966 and has been a pilot for his entire adult life. He is intimately familiar with flying cross country inside the IFR system in single engine and twin aircraft and is an enthusiastic instructor. He is 64 years old and finds aviation to be both a living and an enduring source of fascination. His other avocation is that of a volunteer fireman.
