Bach was taken to Harbourview Medical Centre after his small plane crashed on Friday about three miles west of Friday Harbour Airport in Washington state. A nursing superviser said Bach was in serious condition.
His son, James Bach, said his father is lucid, is responding to doctors and people around him, and has good cognitive function. He said he hopes his 76-year-old father's recovery will be swift.
Richard Bach, who was flying alone, suffered a head injury and broken shoulder after his single-engine aircraft clipped power lines on Friday.
