Jake graduated from Western Michigan Aviation in the spring of 2016. He has been passionate for aviation since a young age. Both of his parents worked for major airlines, so he got to enjoy the gift of flight often as a child, and especially enjoyed being able to sit in the cockpit.  He loved seeing pilots in their uniforms, especially those hats (that no one wears!).  Plus, airplanes are just sweet!

He believes no flight is ever the same, which keeps him passionate for aviation. No such thing as an ordinary flight.

What Jake would say to an aspiring pilot:

“I always tell my students to come into a lesson feeling adventurous and fun. They should be active in the learning process and the aviation community”.

Jake has always wanted to be an airline pilot. His dream route would involve going across the pond for international flights to keep his dream of travel and seeing the world alive.
