It took two stints in Pensacola and one trip across an ocean to get SkyWarrior to Pensacola...

George Sigler - President

George Sigler was born and raised in Abilene TX.  Upon completion of his studies at McMurry University, Mr. Sigler joined the Navy and found himself attending AOCS at NAS Pensacola in 1968 and earned his wings of gold in 1970. He became a carrier pilot flying the A-3 Skywarrior and is a Vietnam Veteran.

 

After his active duty with the Navy he started his own company and produced a survival kit which he tested by sailing a rubber boat from San Francisco to Hawaii. He wrote the book "Experiment in Survival" recounting that expedition. While living in the San Francisco Bay area he started the Single Handed Sailing Society which today is one of the most active sailing groups on the West Coast. As a Navy pilot he had the opportunity to establish the Navy record for the longest flight of a single piloted carrier aircraft by flying non-stop from NAS Rota, Spain to NAS Alameda, CA. He started Skywarrior Flight Training in 2007 as well as Skywarrior Flight Support which currently operates three FBO's.
