Justin always knew he wanted to be a pilot. He grew up in Loveland, Colorado before joining the United States Air Force, where he spent 13 years combined active duty and full time reserve as an avionics technician. While in the Air Force he was stationed at Elmendorf AFB in Anchorage for 10 years and Nellis AFB in Las Vegas for 2 years.
Justin then returned to Anchorage, Alaska to work on his pilot certificates. He discovered in the Air Force that he truly enjoyed teaching, so he pursued his master’s degree so he could teach aviation safety. He became a Certified Flight Instructor because he loves to fly and he loves to teach – so now he gets to do both of his favorite things.
