How LinkedIn has helped you in your careers or businesses:

LinkedIn has opened many doors for me! There is no other professional platform that connects so many people around the world which allows me to share aviation information and get valuable feedback. Since I’m in sales, these connections are priceless. I don’t have to sell anything, I just share my information, build connections and the sales simply follow…

Tips on how to Thrive on LinkedIn:

Social media is a hungry machine. You have to feed it daily. I try to post 5 days per week. One knowledge share and one fun share.

What I use Linkedin for:

I use LinkedIn to inspire, educate and share the passion of aviation. It’s also a platform of feedback within the industry. The technology, rules, regulations and economy move demands around, so LinkedIn is the perfect platform for keeping informed with an opportunity to voice your opinion about the changes.

Number of Followers:





Who am I:

I am passionate about introducing aviation to the next generations and keeping the spirit alive in those who’ve been in it for years. It’s easy for the negative aspects to wash over us. I try to provide a fresh perspective.

What I do:

I wear numerous hats! After 20 years in the cockpit, I also provide pilot training, coaching, and education workshops. I’m also currently working in the aircraft acquisition sector.

Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I promise to keep you smiling, informed, laughing (and sometimes crying) and a constantly reminder that words have power.

Who I follow on Linkedin

There are so many sectors in aviation, I follow so many. However, the best information comes from the front lines so I follow more “anonymous” people than famous people.

❝My favorite post, ironically, isn’t about aviation. I wanted to honor my Marine dad and the followers of LinkedIn truly brought this man to his knees in gratitude. 316,205 impressions. He got the blanked because of LinkedIn.❞
