Giving Back

Why We Give Back

Giving back allows me to stay connected with the aviation community. I am able to provide education and guidance to young individuals who have an interest in piloting or maintenance. I share my 25 plus years of experience in the aviation industry as a private pilot, aircraft mechanic (A&P), and as an aviation business owner. Aviation has been a life-long passion for me and its very fulfilling to share my knowledge and experience.

Ways to Give Back

Young Eagles

I am very interested in supporting the Young Eagles program that was created by the US Experimental Aircraft Association. The program is designed to educate and give children between the ages of 8 and 17 the opportunity to experience flight, free of charge, in a general aviation small aircraft.

Pilots N Paws

My other passion in life is animal welfare. I support the efforts of Pilots N Paws via volunteering of time. Pilots N Paws is a 501(C)(3) organization. Volunteer pilots and plane owners assist in the transportation of animals. From their website https://www.pilotsnpaws.org/about “The intent of Pilots N Paws is to provide an environment in which volunteers can come together and arrange or schedule rescue flights, overnight foster care or shelter, and all other related activities.”
