Anthony has been a pilot since 1996 and earned his Commercial Pilot Certificate & B.S. in Aviation Technology from Andrews University in 2001. He applied his passion for flying and education as an instructor pilot for the Air Force Auxiliary – Civil Air Patrol. After almost a decade of service in search and rescue and Cadet Aerospace Education programs with CAP, he transitioned to civilian applications including instrument/commercial flight instruction, arial mapping, airborn logistics, FAR Part 135 Operations, and even Skydiving. In 2012 Anthony moved his family to Colorado to accept a position with Propel Aircraft as the New Aircraft Delivery and Transition Training pilot for Textron Aviation’s Rocky Mountain Region. There he was responsible for a four state territory including Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana.
With relevant experience in hand, Anthony upgraded to Captain for FedEx flying the CE-208B Grand Caravan, an aircraft purpose built by Textron Aviation specifically for the Feeder operations of FedEx Express.
