Article for “From Private to Professional Pilot” Blog

A couple of weeks ago, Swayne Martin invited me to write an article for his blog about how I got to where I am flying today, the PC-6 in Papua, Indonesia. Always keen to help fellow aviators see the progression to another side of flying that most don’t consider, I jumped at the chance and got busy writing. You can read my article on Swayne’s blog here:

  1. Thanks again for writing in! I’m sure you’ll inspire dozens of aviators just like you have for me.

    Maybe one day you can write back in and share something else meaningful that’s happened; ie a special flight, unique passengers, etc.

    Hope all is well in Indonesia, fly safe,
    Swayne Martin
