how we got started
Where we came from
Kirk and Daniel were college roommates throughout flight school. Kirk graduated a year before Daniel and took a job towing banners in Daytona Beach, FL for a short stint and then accepted a position as a civilian contractor to the Army and Air Force as a chase plane pilot for the military Predator and Reaper Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) program in southern CA. Daniel graduated as a flight instructor for Kansas State University and took a job as a charter pilot in the Monterrey, CA area. Daniel and Kirk’s paths crossed again when they both accepted a position in 2009 at a Wichita, KS startup company designing and test flying Unmanned Aircraft Systems for various DoD contractors. Daniel departed this job after a couple of years to move back closer to his hometown to fly part-time for a local charter company and help on his family farm.
