Mentor profile:
Profile I grew up with an interest in flying from my earliest years. My father was a pilot who ran his own aerial application service so I was always around planes. However when I got older I went to college , graduated and ended up getting a job in a non aviation environment. The desire was always there to fly, but like some of you who are reading this know, bills and family come before your own desires sometimes. I started my flying in July of 1999 had my private license by the end of October, then decided to try an accelerated training program. I finished getting all of my ratings by October of 2000. I had the opportunity to interview with ASA and started with them in January of 2001 and have been flying a CL65 or regional jet for them ever since.

Favorite thing about flying:
I think one of the things I enjoy the most is the view that you have. There are so many fascinating things to see.
Disadvatages of being a pilot:
The time that is spent away from family.

What you would have done different:
I would have started much earlier.
Advice to aspiring pilots:
Advice Learn as much as you can but still take the time to enjoy the experience.
Problems encounterd along the way:
I think the biggest problem that anyone has thatís starting out is making sure you have your finances all lined up.
