Mike joined the retired ranks in 2000 after a collegiate aviation teaching career spanning over 20 years. Much of this time was concurrently served as an active-duty and reserve officer in the U.S. Air Force from which he retired in 1991. Although he held professorships at Ohio State and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Mike's last and longest-tenured academic appointment was with the Department of Aerospace at Middle Tennessee State University.

An ardent believer in institutional outreach and the nurturing of government/industry linkages, he conceived and edited the University Aviation Association's first Collegiate Aviation Directory in 1982 and, in 1983, he went on to serve as the organization's president. His numerous co-curricular involvements include faculty internships with Delta and Northwest Airlines, and a post-doctoral fellowship with the Federal Aviation Administration. Mike is an instrument-rated Commercial Pilot and Certificated Flight/Ground School Instructor . His academic credentials include degrees from the University of Arizona (BA, 1963), the University of Florida (M.Ed., 1969) and Ohio University (Ph.D., 1976). Mike and his wife, Denisha, currently reside in Palm Coast, Florida

Client Testimonials

I just wanted to thank FAPA for the gift certificate I won in a drawing back in July in Denver. I just used it to order a couple uniform items I will be needing. I also want to thank you all for the service you provide to the industry. If it wasn't for the job fair, I wouldn't have known about the opportunities.
