The article features Ryan Becze, executive dining chef for Hearst Tower;s Café in New York City. He has had his weekends free to pursue his other lifelong interest of flying helicopters. He claims that he has been interested in flying, probably ever since he saw the movie "Top Gun." When he was in grade school, he had the opportunity to fly in a little two-seat Piper airplane, which kind of got him hooked on flying.
