Ryan learned the aviation business from the ground up by fueling and washing airplanes, sweeping hangar floors, and mowing grass at his local airport. Being around airplanes at such a young age, Ryan was bitten by the flying bug so it was only natural for him to begin flying prior to drivers education! He went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Flight Technology from Indiana State University in 2005. While at ISU he competed, then later coached the ISU flight team for the National Intercollegiate Flying Association competition. He was also a supervisor of flight for the school where he additionally instructed students in instrument flight, tail wheel, commercial flight, multi – engine, and his dearest aviation endeavor, aerobatics. Ryan went on to work for the Indiana Department of Transportation as Indiana’s Chief Airport Inspector and later as the Operations Managers of the Indianapolis International Airport. Ryan also holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Indianapolis with concentrations in marketing and finance. Today Ryan is a corporate pilot and General Manger for Indy Jet Holding’s; based out of the Indianapolis Regional Airport (MQJ). Whether learning a new aspect of the flying business or helping an aspiring pilot earn his wings, Ryan is fully immersed in aviation. He currently holds SIC ratings in the C-525, C-550B, and C-560XL.
