Major Dad” and His Destiny for Flight
Carthage High School Class of 1993 graduate Mitchell Hall, according to his father, Eddie Hall, “didn't take a normal road to his destiny.” He adds, “Mitch was never really interested in sports, except weightlifting and martial arts, and while most of his peers were out on the gridiron, Mitch was learning to fly.” As a distributive education student, he worked at his father's auto parts store each day, but he couldn't wait to get to the airport for flying lessons, which he started at age 15. He was also interested in learning everything he could about aircraft and engine repairs. He received his pilot's license at 18, right after high school graduation. His passion for flying ultimately led to a remarkable career path that continues today.
