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.”

Chris Porter

Creative Marketing Director

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. Today I get to combine that passion for flying with my creative side through photography and videography. ”
