I’m retired from a major U.S air line, the United States Air Force Reserve and NASA. At my airline I flew the Boeing 787, 747-400, 777, 737 and Airbus 319/320 as a Captain and Check Airman. I also flew the rest of their fleets as a First and Second Officer. For the US Air Force, I flew the Douglas C-9A (DC-9-32F) aeromedical airlift aircraft, transporting patients throughout the United States and world-wide. And for NASA, I was a Research Pilot on the Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA), a Boeing 747SP, and the only flying observatory in the world, conducting Astrophysics research.
