Robert Goyer has been with Flying since 1994 and has been editor-in-chief since 2010.
During his time at the magazine he was written and photographed hundreds of feature stories on a wide variety of topics. His monthly opinion piece/weekly blog entitled Going Direct is one of the most popular and influential columns in aviation.
A commercial land and seaplane pilot with multiengine and instrument ratings and thousands of hours in his logbook, over the years Robert has flown more than 200 different types of homebuilt, ultralight and general aviation aircraft (including a few he says he wished he hadn't). He has piloted dozens of turbine powered aircraft and is type rated in the Cessna 525 CitationJet.
Robert lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, two sons and a rescued Aussie Shepherd. In addition to the other cool airplanes he gets to fly as part of his "job," Robert regularly tools around the country in a Cirrus SR22 out of Austin Executive Airport. His other interests include distance running, roots music, good wine and the fine art of fastpitch baseball.
