Mike grew up in a family involved with both aviation and mechanics. Mike has always enjoying tinkering with pretty much everything, trying to find out how they work, and putting them back together, usually without any “spare” parts left over. His mother holds a Commercial Multi-Engine Instrument Rating and is currently an instructor at Endeavor. His father has been an auto mechanic for 30 plus years. Mike has had plenty of exposure to both worlds, racking up flight time in small aircraft and holding a solid suite of mechanical knowledge. He saw it only fitting to combine his love of aviation and skill with a wrench to come on board as an apprentice, working towards getting his A&P certificate. Mike also plans on getting his Commercial Multi-Engine Instructor Rating down the road to pursue a pilot career in general aviation.
