About Me

As an experienced and successful pilot, I possess the track record, technical knowledge, and expertise to effectively function as a professional Pilot. This year marks my 15th year flying professionally, and I consider myself very blessed to have such an amazing career.

The following examples represent the value I can deliver:

  • Plan, prepare, coordinate, and execute every flight to meet or exceed flight department standards.
  • Meticulously adhere to all company and aviation safety standards, and FAA regulations.
  • Strive to deliver exceptional passenger comfort and service, and ensure a safe and enjoyable flight experience.
  • Help oversee the creative development of Ops Specs, Flight/Safety Manuals and printed materials as needed (i.e. safety videos, aircraft and flight department brochures).

 
During my years in corporate aviation, I have flown extensively across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. I have had the opportunity to fly many different piston, turbo-prop and jet aircraft. I have also been privileged to attend some of the nation’s TOP pilot training facilities, such as: FlightSafety International, SimCom, and FlyRight. I have received specialized training for the Cessna Citation 500 & 525, King Air 90 and 200, and the Cessna Golden Eagle 421B/C.

My number one goal as a professional Pilot is to fly the aircraft in a SAFE and efficient manner. It does not matter if it’s a Cessna 172, a Citation, or a Boeing 737. Safety should never be compromised!

I would very much like the opportunity to discuss with you how I can meet the demands of your flight department, in order to advance your overall mission. Thank you for reviewing this letter and the accompanying material.
