Chad was born and raised in Knoxville, TN, and he received his private license at DKX. He then moved to the Nashville area in 2015 and worked full time, taking a small break from flying. He then attended ATP Flight School in 2019 and received Instrument, Commerical, Multi, CFI, CFII, MEI, and IGI. He then went on to fly corporate part 91 in a Learjet 35 and a Merlin III. That business slowed down due to Covid, so he decided to instruct and pass on his knowledge to others!
When not flying, Chad loves spending time with his significant other, their beautiful husky fur baby, and friends. Even if he's not flying, Chad still loves to travel any chance he gets.
