Newsletter editor/instructor to receive Bax Seat Trophy
Steve Krog, EAA 173799, of Hartford, Wisconsin, will receive the 2008 Bax Seat Trophy tonight at 7 p.m. during a special ceremony at the Theater in the Woods. The award, established during EAA Oshkosh ’97 by FLYING magazine in honor of the magazine’s columnist Gordon Baxter, was first presented in 1998, and it’s given to the EAA member who perpetuates Baxter’s tradition of communicating the excitement and romance of grassroots aviation.

Krog was born and raised in southwestern Minnesota. Family friend and mentor Carroll Bressler, who gave Krog his first airplane ride when he was 12 years old, introduced Krog to the pleasure of aviation, and he has been hooked ever since. He earned his private pilot certificate in 1969 and later earned his commercial ticket as well as instrument and multiengine ratings. Krog eventually migrated to Hartford, Wisconsin, in 1982.

Krog sold his marketing communications firm and established Cub Air Flight LLC, a primary flight school for sport and private pilot students who want to learn in a tailwheel airplane. He also provides tailwheel training for vintage aircraft owners. Steve’s passion for aviation can be seen in the articles he writes, which appear in newsletters
for the Luscombe Association, Cub Newsletter editor/instructor to receive Bax Seat Trophy Club, Taylorcraft Owners Club, Zenair, American Waco Club, and Reach for the Sky, EAA’s learn-to-fly e-newsletter.

Krog and his wife, Sharon, who is also a pilot, own several aircraft, including a 1929 Brunner Winkle Bird, a 1941 Piper J-5A Cruiser (currently being restored), a 1945 Piper J-3, a 1946 Piper PA-12 Super Cruiser, and a 1947 Luscombe 8E. Steve and Sharon have been AirVenture volunteers for more than 10 years. They also own and manage the Cub Club, the Luscombe Association, and the Taylorcraft Owners Club, three very active type clubs.
