Pilot Bill Morris used to drive some 40,000 miles per year for his job, and had at least two accidents during that time. "Each car was hit by somebody ... I decided I better learn how to fly, or they were going to kill me," he said. He earned his pilot's license in 1963 and has more than 6,000 hours in the air, flying mostly for business. Now at 81, he is being honored by the Federal Aviation Administration for 50 years of accident-free flying.
