Andrew got his love for aviation from his family, his grandfather was an Avionics Manager and his father was a maintenance supervisor both for Trans World Airlines and his mother was a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines. Andrew’s career in aviation started shortly after graduating high school where he worked under his father performing maintenance for several airlines on 737’s, 757’s, and 767’s while learning to fly at ATD. After earning his private pilot certificate Andrew moved to Indianapolis to earn his instrument, commercial, and flight instructor certificates before moving back to Kansas City in 2020. Andrew’s favorite aviation memory is sitting in the right seat next to his dad and taxiing a Boeing 767 before he had his drivers permit. Outside of flying Andrew enjoys cheering on the Chiefs and Royals as well as snowboarding and boating.
