My name is Keith Perry and I am a customer-oriented, professional pilot who enthusiastically
provides the highest standards of safety and service and I am looking forward to an opportunity for
a pilot position with your company.
For the past 7 years I have enjoyed managing and flying Part 91 in a King Air 350 out of New
Orleans Lakefront Airport. The family I flew for are excellent people and as their first ever pilot I
helped acquire the airplane, set up insurance, hire copilots and manage the maintenance schedule.
In January 2020 I left that job and accepted a position as Captain in a Gulfstream G280 based in the
Atlanta, Ga area. After earning my type rating in January of 2020 we flew only a few trips before
receiving the news that we will no longer be needed due to the COVID pandemic. My daily mindset in every job I have held is
that providing a luxury and customer service are the most important aspects of my job (after safety
of course) with flying the airplane being the way to meet those needs. It is with that customer-first
mindset that I believe I am the best candidate for your position.
In closing I very much welcome the chance to talk with you about how my previous experience can
benefit your flight department so please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for your time!
