“My entire life has been spent working with my family. I started working in my teens in my parent’s business in New York and eventually migrated over to working with my husband, Michael, and his family. I feel lucky to have been so close to my family all these years and have had the opportunity to travel to all corners of the earth! Learning about the aviation business and becoming a pilot has been a challenge and a thrill.”

More about Chris

Chris has held a lifelong fascination with flying. “I attended my first air show in 1991. Aviation took over my life from that day on. The posters I had on my wall changed from sports stars to Blue Angels and P-51’s. When I began taking flight lessons it was for the explicit purpose of pursuing a career as an air show pilot. Now, I work alongside one of my idols traveling the country and sharing that passion.”
