John Gaglioti's first flight as a pilot was scary. 

"You train for it, but when you first solo, it's a big deal," he says.

Gaglioti, a current Del Rey Oaks City Council member, was born and raised in Monterey. He has had a license as private pilot since 2009.

"I like the freedom of going to wherever I want to go," he says. "I like being able to go to Los Angeles in under two hours."
