Seth’s passion for aviation started when he was little. Growing up right next to KPVD had him around aircraft all his childhood and attending a local airshow had him hooked for life. He knew for sure that flying is what he wanted to do. From then on, Seth was building model kits of aircraft and finding out everything he could about flying. Seth attended Daniel Webster College in 2006 and majored in Aviation Flight Operations and Aviation Management with a focus in corporate aviation, graduating in 2011. During that time he had worked for Horizon Aviation as a ramp agent while the company was still at KPVD Hangar 1. During college, he earned his PPL, Instrument Rating, and started his CPL. After college Seth moved back home to finish his Commercial with Horizon Aviation. At the same time, he was hired by FedEx Express as a material handler working on the Boeing 727, 757, and Cessna 208B Cargomaster. Seth’s long-term goal is to become a pilot for FedEx flying international long-haul routes in the Boeing 777F. After finishing his CPL, Seth started training for his CFI with Horizon and that brings his story up to the present.
Seth has found that being a CFI is both rewarding and a ton of fun. Being a CFI has it’s challenges, but overall it is a very gratifying experience. Not only does he have the best office view in the world, but Seth gets to have fun while training, and shows his students the potential they have for doing great things in aviation. His background in flight, ground ops, and aviation management allows his passion for aviation to be easily translated through his instruction and acts as encouragement and motivation to students.
