David Faile Flying Stars and Stripes
David Faile is a pilot who has been flying the skies for forty-seven years. He was in the process of building his second airplane (above) when an elbow injury almost brought him and his project to a halt. After enduring several elbow, wrist and hand surgeries, he found that Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy had become his biggest challenge.
Thanks to an early diagnosis, as well as constant encouragement from his surgeon and physical therapist, he began to recover. He learned from them that keeping a good attitude was half the battle. This care and encouragement helped him move ahead, and he completed his airplane project, Stars & Stripes.
Mr. Faile noted a significant change in his facial appearance as he recovered from RSD / CRPS ..... Learn More
