Ensuring healthy pilots on and off the ground
Over the years, Dr. Brent Blue has contributed to the future
of aviation and EAA in numerous ways. From introducing pulse
oximetry and digital carbon monoxide detection to general aviation,
to creating EAA’s Aeromedical Advisory program, to championing
EAA’s residential “through the fence” support, Brent has made his
mark on the world of flight.
Looking back to the beginning of his career, Brent looks to his
20s – a time when he learned to fly in Nashville during summers
between his college years. From then on, his passion for aviation,
and eventually EAA, only grew stronger. Today, Brent recently
finished an 11-year project building a Blue Bear (a modified Murphy
Moose), in addition to flying a 450 Stearman and Cessna 340.
“I am a lifetime member of EAA. I think it’s a great organization,”
he elaborates. “The thing that makes it most unique is its
‘members helping members’ attitude. We all share common
ground of a love for aviation, and that really evens the playing field
regardless of our backgrounds.”
To Brent, EAA is not only a place to build friendships, but it’s
also a resource for information and expertise on nearly every
aviation topic. From ultralight operation to homebuilding, antique
and warbirds to production aircraft, EAA’s membership base has
expertise unlike any other organization.
