“I can’t remember a time when aviation was not a
major part of my life. I had my first airplane ride at 9 months old
and spent a lot of time at a general aviation airport operated by a
family member near Milwaukee,” said Pete Bunce.
“The fun and freedom of general aviation lead me to become
a pilot and I am honored to have had the opportunity to fly in the
service of our Nation. Now that my military career has ended, I
look forward to focusing my efforts on fostering the growth, safety
and security of general aviation at GAMA.”
