BIOGRAPHICAL DETAILS: Strutting, virile-voiced, tall, strapping pilot who runs Launchpad Limited from an airfield in Duckburg. He dresses like a 1930s aviator, complete with cap, goggles, scarf, bomber jacket, leather breeches and boots. Once a family member of a barn-stormer troupe, "The Flying McQuacks," he was hired as Uncle $crooge's personal pilot. No one is sure if Launchpad is an ex-military pilot or an Amazon bush flyer. He has a gift with vehicles - if it moves, he can drive it (he just has trouble keeping it from crashing). Currently DarkWing Duck's pilot, sidekick and confidant. Occasionally serves as Huey, Dewey & Louie's Junior Woodchucks Scout Master. The chubby young woodchuck named Doofus Drake is Launchpad's biggest fan.
