What are some of your interests in aviation or other hobbies?

My main goal in aviation is to earn a Private Pilot License. I also want to return to the sport of Soaring and earn a glider rating. I would also like to continue with an IFR rating as well. Presently, I belong to a flying club based at KPOU (Poughkeepsie, NY) and I am also active with CAP. I like the idea of flying for CAP, doing search-and-rescue, reconnaissance, and Cadet orientation flights. I also like the idea of doing animal rescue flights for some of the non-profit organizations that do wonderful work in this area. Outside of flying, I like to tinker with electronics, do white hat hacking (I work in the Information Security field, and teach graduate Cyber Security at University of Maryland), and this is what makes me eccentric.

Are you a certified pilot? If so, what certificate(s) and rating(s) do you hold?

I am a Student Pilot. However, this is not a crutch. To me it means that I am learning.

What is your homebase airport (if any)?

KPOU - Poughkeepsie, NY


Private Pilot running out of Poughkeepsie, NY (KPOU). Interested in getting out to events, often as a family, and doing charitable flights. Nice to meet you!
