Read more about Mitch below:

I first took the controls of an airplane around age four when I would hold the stick in my  adopted uncles home-built airplane while sitting on his lap as we taxied up and down the runway (babbling incoherently on the radio the entire time); that moment instilled a fantasy of, and a thirst for flight that I have yet to quench to this day. Around age ten I moved near a small grass runway and began spending as much time there as I could, helping work on the airplanes and mowing the runway. When I turned 12 I was tall enough to reach the rudder pedals and began taking flying lessons in a Piper Cub, I soloed the Cub at 19 years old and have earned my ratings since then. I currently fly as a contract corporate pilot in the local area for several different operators and I flight instruct in my spare time.
