2020 marked my 52nd year in aviation.  You don't travel through five decades without your share of obstacles and adversities.  I have always enjoyed the challenges and accepted each to allow positive growth for each company, fellow team member as well as for myself. Over the years, airlines have come and gone, jobs changed but it added to the adventure called career.

Stories from a Private Jet Terminal 

is a presentation I was giving at various business luncheons around Honolulu. 

Presentations ran about 20 minutes or so.

I printed out my PowerPoint presentation with notes and posted here.


Bob Sigall, Honolulu Star-Advertiser, Rearview Mirrior Columinist's fourth book about Hawaii's companies and the people within. A quick story about some of the people that transited through the private jet terminals. Based on my presentation above.

I will continue to post stories from my years in aviation on this page. Even though this website is dedicated to Antilles Air Boats,     I find "my page" to be an opportunity to tell my story.

I encourage other past AAB employees to tell their story on their page as well.

During my years as a U.S. Coast Guard Reserve Aviation Petty Officer, living on Cape Cod, I deviated from Aviation in few jobs to pay the bills.
