Rick Hatcher

Rick Hatcher

Rick Hatcher has been flying since 1975. However, he says his first attempts at flight as a child using big sheets of cardboard didn’t work out real well! He started flying at Franklin-Wilkins Airport in Lexington with Mr. Boen as his instructor. “My first lesson scared the daylights out of me!” says Rick. “It was sooo rough! Once we got up a little higher, it smoothed out.” Rick got his private pilot’s license in the spring of 1975. He has been a commercial pilot since 1981. One hour after receiving the rating, he was flying smoke patrol for the state. He is also a CFII and has taught countless students how to fly. Rick now holds an Airline Transport Rating as well as CFII and MEI. He has over 8100 hours of flight time. He currently flies a Cessna Citation 500 and has flown for Graves and Graves Construction for the last 28 years.
