What point in your life did you know you wanted to fly helicopters?
Never thought I’d ever choose flying helicopters as a career, but my friends and family support my love for helicopters. As much as you want to plan your life, it has many ways of surprising you unexpectedly that will make you happier then you originally planned.

What is your favorite to fly?
Off airport.

What obstacles have you had to overcome to get where you are today?
Finding financial support. Training is very expensive but finances are half the battle with the amount of material that we have to learn.

Where do you hope your helicopter training will take you? 
I hope to make a difference in world, whether its inside or outside the cockpit.

The environment at the office and the ability to receive financial aid.

Living here for 22 years and viewing the island from the birds eye view never gets old. Also, it’s my home state, so its good to be close to home.
