Sam’s dad sparked his interest in flying at a young age with his stories about flying. Since then Sam has wanted to be a pilot. He started flying during his freshman year of college after he moved back to Denver and changed his major to aviation. His goal has always been to be a flight instructor. He spent the year 2017 as a member of the MSU Denver Aerobatics team and based on that experience Sam realized he also wants to teach and complete in aerobatics. When I am not flying, I like snowboarding, wake-boarding and skydiving.
