An swers, www.cancer.org BY LYNNE GREGG Chris Gregg meets Eugene Kranz, a retired NASA flight director and manager, who helped save the crew of Apollo 13. Aviator FROM PAGE B1 "He really surprised us,." Lynne Gregg said of herself and the in- struetor. "He does some beautiful lan, gs." a weeks ago, Chris and Lynne Gregg traveled to California, to soak up some sun, but not on the beach. The pair traveled to visit Butt Rutan's Mojave Spaceport. Rutan is the owner of Scaled Composites and one of Chris' idols. There, Ru- tan, other investors and compa- nies build test planes and passen- tg.er spacecraft, hoping to advance ghts to space. their tour, a guide said he hadn't seen Rutan at the facility for nearly two years. But near the end of the tour, they spotted him. The guide stopped the bus and tracked him down inside, then came to collect Chris so he could meet him. "What did he say to you Chris?" Lynne Gregg askedher son during a recent interview. "He told me, 'Just work hard,'" Chris said, shrugging. "And? 'To do well in school,'" she $aid. "It's what I tell him all the time, but of course, coming from Burt Rutan, that's differ- ent." After seeing the innovation and possibilities in flight, the two are talking about Chris attending Avia- tion High School, in the Highline School District. The program offers all of the standard curricula for a student to earn his or her diploma, but les- sons are geared to allowing stu- dents to focus their studies on aeronautics, aerospace engineer- in,g,, flight and spacecraft. ' I wish that when I was growing up in Chicago, someone would have told me I could have been a pilot," Lynne Gregg said. "I feel like our parents didn't expect that much from us. "I was always told by my father that I could do anything I wanted, but I wasn't given examples," she added. "That is what I'm trying to do different with Chris, give him examples." As for his future, Chris is certain flying will be a huge part of it, whether it's as a commercial pilot, an Air Force officer and fighter pi- lot, or helping to design new ways to a,llow other people to fly. Ive been interested in flying all my life," he said. "I'd love to own my own airline someday, like Richard Branson's Virgin America. One with the cool deals and all the little extras."
