Captain Greg White began his aviation career in 1973 as a graduate of San Jacinto College, Department of Aeronautical Technology’s Professional Pilot Coarse. Greg began working as in 1978 as a Certified Flight Instructor where he amassed 1000 hours of dual instruction given. During that time, he added AGI, CFII, and CFI multi-engine certificates.
As a corporate pilot for a couple companies he flew a variety of twin-engine aircraft as either a staff pilot or Chief Pilot. In addition, he flew for several additional companies as a contract pilot working under his own pilot services and aircraft management operation. He also did a couple of tours as a traffic watch pilot in single engine Cessna’s for KRBE radio (FM 104.1) onboard the “KRBEagle” and Traffic Central (for KPRC and KIKK radio stations). He flew under the call sign “Crash the wonder pilot”.

In April 1987, he achieved his career goal of going to work for Continental Airlines starting as a Second Officer (flight engineer) on the B-727. His career with Continental included First Officer (F/O, co-pilot) on the 727, 737, 757, 767, and Captain on the “7-3”. He recently retired from United Airlines who acquired Continental Airlines.
Greg joined GHAFI in the fall of 1987. He soon realized that GHAFI was a wonderful conduit to give back to my industry by passing along much of what he had learned over the years to others coming up behind him and/or those who just love flying and enjoy increasing their knowledge base. He has been a presenter at many of the GHAFI CFI renewal clinics, and has served on the Board of Directors as Director, VP, and five term President.
In addition Greg is a “Lead Docent” at the Lone Star Flight Museum, the Classic rock DJ for the Mustang Club of Houston (stage identity is “Captain Crash”), and is a Colonel in the Commemorative Air Force.
