Gordon “Bax” Baxter

Aviation Writer

Captivated Texas readers with the "Bax Seat" column in Flying Magazine

Texas radio personality and aviation writer Gordon Baxter was entranced by flying from the time of his childhood in Port Arthur, Texas. Though his goal was to be a pilot during World War II, his dream of flying was not realized until 1957 when he earned his private pilot’s license. However, it was in his writing where his passion for planes and flying was truly expressed. As a columnist for Flying Magazine for more than 25 years, he captivated his audiences with his humor and descriptions of the joys of flying.
