“My name is Daniel, I am 26 years old. I have held an FAA A&P mechanic certificate since 2017. I have been flying model aircraft since I was 12. My Interest in Aviation started growing up around my Fathers profession, helicopter maintenance. It wasn’t until one Christmas my dad bought himself and I Align T-rex 450 R/C helicopter kits that turned an interest in aviation into a passion. building those kits and learning to tune and fly those helicopters with my dad are memories I will never forget. Model aviation has had a huge impact in my career path. as a young adult I achieved a dream and earned my Airframe and Powerplant mechanic certificate and my private pilot certificate. Today I enjoy flying and building all different sorts of Model aircraft consisting of Helicopters, multi rotors, and fixed wing aircraft. some I built from scratch, others as kits. I look forward to sharing this hobby and passion I have for aviation with my family someday. I believe that model aviation is not only a great enjoyable hobby, but also a tool to share with the younger generation that could inspire them to pursue a rewarding career in aviation as it has done for me.”
