Honor Pilots In The International Marathon Swimming Hall Of Fame
Over the next two years, four pilots were inducted and there are now 11 pilots enshrined in the Hall of Fame.
With the exception of Charlie Gravett, who plies his trade around the Isle of Jersey, and Mickey Pittman and John Pittman, who guided swimmers across the Catalina Channel, all of the inducted escort pilots in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame are men who focus their activities with swimmers and relays in the English Channel.
