After obtaining his Private Pilot's License in 1987, he went on to become an instrument-rated commercial pilot, qualified in single-engine land and seaplanes and multi-engine aircraft.

He owned and operated a Part 135 air charter company for over five years until 2009, when it was sold.

Most recently, he was part owner of a Super Decathlon, in which he was learning aerobatic flying and maneuvers.
