Owner/Pilot: David “Candy Man” Mars
A large measure of Southern charm, expertly blended with 40 years of flying vintage aircraft, makes a perfect recipe for this Mississippi barnstormer’s sweet success as owner/operator of Vintage Air Tours. Rumored to have soloed a Piper Cub at the age of two, the “Candy Man” is a legendary mixture of incomparable skill, implausible stories, and unparalleled wit. His passion for the early years of aviation extends far beyond the wings of his 1929 Travel Air. Noted Charles Lindbergh historian, David has one of the largest collections of authentic Lindbergh artifacts outside of the Lindbergh family.
