Mark was truly born and raised in the world of aviation. Having both parents as pilots that owned several aircraft, he was instilled with a love for the art and science of aviation from the very beginning. As such, Mark soloed in a Cessna 150 when just 16 years old – receiving his private nearly a year later. When he wasn’t flying, he was working in the field of aviation in such arenas as crop dusting, line service at airports and even banner towing operations while still in high school. Mark continues ongoing recurrence training for IFR and multi engine proficiency as he continues to work as a charter pilot. With thousands of hours in the left seat, he maintains nearly as many hours studying aircraft logbooks, performance charts and individual aircraft factors such as AD’s, manufacturer service bulletins and the like. We feel that Mark’s attributes bring a level of talent and expertise to our customers that is virtually unmatched anywhere in the industry.
