Clay Lacy was honored at NBAA2011 with the Meritorious Service to Aviation Award. From Mary F. Silitch’s story at AINonline, Lacy is quoted as saying, “at 12, I started working at Cannonball Airport receiving flight time for pay.” Historically, that was pretty common. Does anyone pay with flight time anymore?
