He quickly rose through the ranks to Maintenance Supervisor. He started working part-time for Castle Aviation in 1993 and by 1996 became full-time. In 1997, he was promoted to Director of Maintenance. Dave additionally is a 2000+ hour commercial pilot with a multi-engine rating and is also an aircraft owner.
