My father, Marshall Smith, built our grass strip in the 50's. Growing up, our family had several aircraft. Since then, I have started South Mississippi Light Aircraft (SMLA). I have personally built 15 or more experimental aircrafts and a countless number of ultralights. I am a private pilot and currently fly a Rans S7 with a Rotax 915iS. Some of my most recent adventures include flying the Lewis and Clark trail back in 2018, in 2019, a trip to Tuson, AZ to visit the Puma Air Museum.
