Bryan is a former U.S. Marine and engineer in the telecommunications industry. After corporate restructuring left him with an ultimatum at his “regular” job, he decided to follow his lifelong passion for aviation and in 2014 opened V1 Aeronautics. His goal in founding V1 Aeronautics was to provide high-quality aircraft management services centered on superb customer services and unparalleled attention to safety.
Bryan holds a commercial pilot certificate with single-engine, multi-engine, and instrument ratings, as well as DA50 (Falcon 50), CE-510S, and CE-525S type ratings. He is also an FAA Gold Seal certified flight instructor, multiengine instructor, instrument instructor, and advanced ground instructor.
While he enjoys flying larger aircraft, Bryan feels most connected to flight when hopping grass strips in his 2006 Aviat Husky. He is also a nonactive USPA licensed skydiver.
Bryan’s first memory of aviation dates back to 1982 at a small grass-strip glider port in Woodbine, MD where at the age of 6 he took his first flight lesson in a glider. (Some historical information about the now-closed Woodbine Glider Port)
