Interviewing the 2022 US National F-Open Champion Tim Vaught (737 Airline Pilot & 25 year duty U.S. Army Warrant Officer Aviator)
Tim Vaught (USA) is an excellent shooter to begin with and we asked him to shoot at the F Class Nationals 2022 with the prototype of the March-X 8-80×56 High Master Wide Angle Scope. To our delight, Tim Vaught won and became the US National F-Open Champion for 2022. (Link to Tim’s comment on the Championship shooting with the 8-80×56 High Master Scope: https://marchscopes.com/news/14179/) Amazingly Tim just started shooting F class from 2018. He works as a 737 Airline Pilot and was an U.S. Army Warrant Officer Aviator for 25 years. As his background was so interesting we asked him to write a personal bio and shooting history for us. Tim kindly sent us the write-up below. Thank you for sharing your inspiring story with us!
Born and raised in rural Nebraska with very conservative and humble Midwestern family roots on both my fathers and mothers side of my family as multi generational farmers of corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and beef cattle. At 18 years of age enlisted as a Private in the United States Army as a Helicopter Mechanic. After 5 years had achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant E-6, and was selected for Warrant Officer Flight Training. Accumulated over 4500 hours of flight experience over the next 20 years for the United States Army in a wide variety of helicopter and airplane assignments across the Globe ranging from Alaska, Honduras, Colombia, Germany, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Awarded and decorated as a Master Army Aviator, with 4 Air Medals, the Bronze Star and the Legion of Merit, with over 1000 hours logged in a Combat environment. After 25 years of contiguous Active Duty service, I retired as a Chief Warrant Officer Four, and secured employment as a Boeing 737 First Officer with a very successful 121 airline headquartered in Dallas Texas, with which have now been employed for 7 years.
