I've been interested in flight since a very young age. I grew up a mile away from the local municipal airport and would watch planes practice in the pattern for hours. I took my discovery flight at age 15 and took my first pilot lessons before I could even drive a car. 9/11 led to me joining the US Air Force and learning to fly had to wait. However, Microsoft Flight 2004 came out and kept my interest while I served. After my military time, I decided to make it happen and in 2011 I finally passed my check ride and got my license. I've continued to sim and now have over 4,000 total hours in various VA's and over 850 hours at Delta Virtual after joining in January 2019. I currently live in Seattle, Washington, work for Amazon corporate – am married, no kids (because I spend too much on payware ????). In both real life and sim, the mantra is relative – a mile of road will take you a mile, but a mile of runway will take you anywhere!
