Bob was born with an X, Y, and an A chromosome with A being for aviation. As a small boy he built over a hundred airplane models with a majority of them hanging from his bedroom ceiling. He experimented with model rockets, played with gas and remote control airplanes. Then as a teenager a friend of his father’s had a 1941 Globe Swift tail dragger, which he got to fly several times and the passion for flying became almost an obsession.
After some sport injuries and realizing that he would not have any career in professional sports he turned to his passion of flying and attended Metro State University of Denver. He graduated in 1991 with a Bachelors degree and a Professional Pilot major, a double minor in Aviation Management and International Business. He received his flight instructor certificate in the summer of 1991 and worked 12 years at Jeppesen as the Product Manager of aviation training. He acted as the Director of Training of the Jeppesen Employee Flight Association and a check airman.
Bob has lived his entire life in Colorado and the Denver area, so he is very familiar with the diverse conditions that can be found here. He has been flying for over 30 years all based out of Centennial Airport.
“Safety is of the utmost importance in my flying and teaching. We all can work on being safer pilots and making the skies a safer place to enjoy our passion for flying.”
