When one door temporarily closed for Ken, two more opened, including becoming a partner at AlphaFlight.
An aviator and entrepreneur, Ken earned an aeronautics degree in college, before going on to become a certified flight instructor with Purdue University and, later, a commercial airline pilot. Unfortunately, he was among the many pilots laid off after the 9/11 attacks by some of the major airline carriers.
Searching for his next opportunity, Ken relied heavily on his faith in God to provide him direction. Listening to the Word, Ken found himself pursuing two second passions — automobiles and business, opening car dealerships. Later, he would return to flying, his first passion and join Dan in purchasing AlphaFlight, combining his success in business with his love of flying.
