about

Ken brings a wealth of aviation experience, the breadth and depth of which few pilots acquire. His 20,000 hours of flying time is spread across more than four decades of flying as an airline pilot for a major carrier, a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, a corporate pilot and a general aviation pilot and an aircraft owner. He is a CFII who has type ratings in B-737, B-757, B767, A-310,A-300 and Super 80 aircraft and amassed 2,000 hours in F-4/C/D/E, F-16C/D, T-37 and T-38 military aircraft and flown thousands of hours in GA aircraft. Ken can provide you the broadest of perspectives about the world of flying, how to do it and what to do with it. Whether you’re just wanting to get started flying, wanting to return to flying, wanting to prepare for a professional business/commercial aviation career or be a military pilot, Ken is able to tailor your training for your desired outcome because he’s done it all.

Background

Ken got his private pilot license when he was 17 and has been flying at various levels since.  He subsequently enlisted into the U.S. Air Force, completed his college degree while on active duty, flew in Air Force Aero Clubs and finally was selected to Air Force pilot training with an eye and age waiver.  He flew for a major air carrier for 25 years and has traveled the world through his Air Force and airline careers.  He believes there are three major phases in one’s life and distills them down to the Learning Years, the Earning Years and the Returning Years.  He’s now enjoying his Returning Years.

Personal Life

As you might expect his hobbies including aviation, travel and reading.  His 40-year marriage to his wife, Jene, brings him his greatest joy as well as watching his son, Grant, and his daughter, Grace, journey through their hard-earned professional careers as a computer science engineer and certified public account, respectively.
