I purchased N757ZR February 2005 from James Kay, a close friend. I began flying in 1987 at Hanover County Municipal airport (KOFP). There were five Cessna 152 trainers at Hanover County which included N757ZR. Later when researching my first log book, I realized I had logged a few hours in N757ZR way back in 1989. I  actually found photo's of myself in the cockpit of N757ZR from my training days!

Previous owner and CFI James Kay gave me my spin training in N757ZR. When he told me he was going to sell the airplane, I decided to purchase it.

These days I fly fixed wing aircraft for a living for Henrico County Police in Virginia. I am a Certified Flight Instructor and ATP rated.  My wife and I fly day trips in Virginia, Maryland, & North Carolina. My 7 year old daughter loves to fly with me on local flights in the Richmond area, taking in the sights low and slow. ( the way flying was meant to be) I continue to base N757ZR at it's original home, Hanover County Municipal .
