Hippler now hunts hurricanes, flies heavy haulers after USAF career

Read Time:3 Minute, 5 Second


Lt. Col Chuck Hippler, USAFR (retired) graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1975 and began a distinguished flying career shortly after this flight school photo was taken.

He’s still flying, it’s just not with the Air Force. Nor does he have a reserved seat in the cockpit anymore.

“Rose-Marie and I recently returned from our 30th wedding anniversary,” said the retired Air Force Reserve lieutenant colonel and Desert Storm veteran, who flew in passenger comfort over to France.  

“They lost our luggage,” Chuck reported. But the couple — frequent campers — shrugged it off right away.

“We had planned all along to do a lot of hiking,” he said, “so we bought a couple changes of clothing and kinda aimed for an ‘L.L. Bean look’ versus fancy dresses and a tuxedo.”

A 1971 Eustis High School alum and Eagle Scout, he inherited much of his easygoing, quick-adjustment abilities from his late Dad, C. James Hippler, a popular accountant in town who had a wry sense of humor – but an immovable stubborn strength if issues of integrity or social justice were about to be compromised.
