About Me

profile picI’m a lifelong aviation junkie. In addition to my informal studies of aviation since I was old enough to speak, I studied aeronautical engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I spent a few years flying helicopters in the US Navy, then got my first civilian job with a corporate jet brokerage company. I worked for Piper Aircraft in Vero Beach, Florida, doing trade shows and demo flights all over the US and Europe. Currently I’m a freelance flight instructor.
