1983 to Retirement (Jan 2019)
- Airline Pilot
I consider myself very fortunate to have survived the tumultuous decades of airline expansion and contraction, and consolidations, and now as my retirement age rapidly approaches, I am finding great joy in creating my own business in the field of aerial photography using small unmanned aircraft, commonly referred to as drones, in this endeavor. Certified by the Federal Aviation Administration under the new Part 107 rules to ensure that safety is the overriding principle in my work. 1978 to 1983

From flying nightly freight, cancelled bank check runs, transporting executives in Citation jets, or as a commuter pilot in the northeast feeding passengers to the late Pan Am Airlines at Kennedy airport, these are how I built my experience prior to working for the airlines.
