A true aviator at heart, Kurt became intrigued by aviation at an early age. Growing up he gravitated toward any opportunity to be around aircraft. His career prospects in aviation then developed due to a jack-of-all type job and flight lessons at a local municipal airport.
While pursuing his collegiate aviation education at Purdue University he partook in an internship with a Northeast based flight department which later launched his professional career in corporate aviation. In the years since, he has accumulated significant operating experience in several different types of aircraft both domestic and internationally. He is presently employed with a Northeast based flight department as a Captain with extra duties as an International Operations Manager.
