In Pikeville, Kentucky, “the nicest place in town” was founded by an approachable, down-to-earth lawyer who loves to ride his motorcycle. A Pike County native, Billy Johnson is heavily involved in the community and prides himself on getting results for his clients. One of the ways he has been able to streamline his practice is to use his love of the outdoors as an efficient way to bring the best resources to this beautiful area of the Appalachians. An instrument-rated private pilot who enjoys flying his own plane over the hills and Bluegrass horse farms of Kentucky, he’s been using aircraft since 1998 to help bridge the divide that can sometimes make Eastern KY feel even more isolated than it actually is. With the closest airports three and a half hours away, Billy saves a lot of time handling claims that require travel by flying himself rather than driving to the location or driving to the airport and flying commercially. Besides being a named a Super Lawyer by U.S. News & World Report and being a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, Billy is also a savvy consumer. After having disappointing experiences with three separate Cirrus models, Billy’s research led him to the Cessna TTX – and he couldn’t be happier about that decision. Billy found that the high performance Cessna aircraft was more comfortable for his 5’9”, 220-pound frame than his other possible choice, a Mooney. The TTX was faster than the Cirrus, with better handling. In fact, the carbon fiber TTX is the second fastest piston single in production at 235 knots true. It also offers air conditioning, a Flight into Known Icing (FIKI) system, and technologically advanced Garmin G2000 avionics with built-in redundancy. Beyond all the sophisticated bells and whistles, Billy is a big fan of the way the aircraft looks, from its stylish paint work to its elegant leather interior. Given its reputation for dependability and reliability, Billy had no qualms about its lacking a parachute. Proudly built by a U.S. company, this TTX is working in partnership with another native son, helping him with his life’s work representing people throughout Kentucky with their personal injury problems. Nearly 20 percent of Americans live in rural areas, but the New York Times says just two percent of small law practices are in those areas. Billy Johnson is honored to have one of those practices and looks forward to continuing his partnership – with Cessna and with his fellow Kentuckians.
