That's amazing, I'm wondering. On a visit of my then wifes grandparents in Prineville Oregon (central Oregon), I offered to take her grandfather for a ride in my rented Piper Archer. He declined and explained himself with this story. As a young man he considered taking flying lessons and went for an intro ride. The aircraft was a Curtis Jenny and the pilot was an ex_WWI flyer. So I assumed the time period was the late 19-teens or 1920's The guy did a number of aerobatic maneuvers on that intro ride apparently to see if the client had the right stuff. The client got sick and chose to never ride in an aircraft again.
