Before aviation Aaron toured the country as a guitar tech for a band from his native city Minneapolis. He earned his Private Pilot Certificate in 1995 in between touring and working at a local guitar shop when he wasn’t on tour. He got the bug for aviation from his father (private pilot) and two cousins (professional pilots). Once the rock n’ roll lifestyle came to an end, he dove into aviation and earned the rest of his certificates and ratings. He flew for a regional airline for some time but now manages his own business and flight instructs just for the fun of it and to help people succeed in aviation.
