How long have you been in the aerospace business?

5 years. 

How did you become interested in aircraft?

I’ve always been interested in airplanes and flying, and seeing the history of the warbirds really spurred it on.

What is your favorite aircraft and why?

The Grumman F6F Hellcat is one of my top picks. It went from drawing to flight in a year and ruled the sky in the Pacific theater.
