Alec’s passion for aviation began when he took his first single engine flight at Lost Nation Airport. The event left a lasting impression on him and led to him attending Ohio University where he earned a degree in aviation management. In 2014, he joined the Air National Guard and worked as an aircraft non-destructive inspection technician at the Rickenbacker, Ohio, base. He has also worked as an air traffic controller in Oklahoma City. These and other experiences have given Alec a diverse skill set and a broad perspective on the aviation industry.
