If you could change one thing about the industry, what would it be and why?

Not sure.

Learning about aviation and the many differences. When I first started working at APA, I didn’t know much about aviation. I actually knew nothing about aviation. Since working here, I have learned so many different things and now I get to share my knowledge with others.

Finally, what is your favorite airplane?

Falcon Jet and that’s because I was able to fly in one with the team. It was an awesome experience.
