Who is Tracy Reed?

I am a Linux enthusiast, a multi-engine instrument-rated pilot, and a traveller. I am interested in all aspects of computing and technology in general, especially Linux and Free Software. As an avid pilot I can be found somewhere over the skies of the southwestern US most weekends.  As a traveller I have been to many interesting places. Check out my photo gallery. Want to get me something cool? Check out my wish list!




I am a multi-engine instrument rated private pilot. I usually fly out of Montgomery Field (MYF) in San Diego, CA. I can be found somewhere in the skies over the southwest US each weekend. In particular I like flying to Mexico, Mammoth, and Las Vegas. I like to take pictures of my flights and have gathered quite a collection already. You can check them out in the flying section of my photo gallery.

People often ask my why I'm not an airline pilot by now since I certainly could be. Airline flying is the only kind of flying the average person has exposure to. There is a lot more to flying than being an airline pilot. I'll never be a pilot for a major or even regional airline. Here's why.
