Career Highlights

My flying experience started in Kotzebue Alaska at Ryan Air.

Next I moved to Africa and flew for the U.N.

Objective

Flight Crew Pt. 91, Pt.135

Additional Details: Extensive International and Oceanic Crossings. Flights into Europe, Asia,India, Mid East, Africa, South America, Australia, Malaysia and North America. My career started in North West Alaska flying passengers and freight between Eskimo villages. Later moved to Africa where I flew for the United Nations during Life Line Sudan, the Rawanda Crisis. In 1997 I started with Champion Air as a 727 Flight Engineer.Within 11 months I upgraded to F/O and Captain.. We flew Vacation Charters and High End Corporate Charters, including Kerry and Edwards Presidential run. Other Contracts included the NBA, NHL and NASCAR Teams. In 2005 Champion Air's future was in jeopardy with the merger of NWA and Delta. Champion was owned by NWA. Champion Air ceased operations 2 years later.
I took a position as 747 FO at Southern Air and upgraded to Captain in 4 months. The 747 operated World Wide including Military flights into the Afghanistan and Iraq war zones. During 2012 I moved over to the 777 where I have flown as Captain 6 1/2 years now. The 777 departs from LAX and CVG to International destinations with 4 Oceanic crossings per month.
I’ve always earned my way in Aviation and expect the same in my next position. Starting as a First Officer, learning the operation and aircraft are paramount to safety. Look forward to discussing my qualifications and future employment with your organization.
