Becoming a pilot takes a whole lot of hard work, dedication and planning. Nearly everyone has a unique path to their career in the skies. Whether that’s as an airline pilot, military aviator, corporate pilot or so many different types of flyers in between, there is a path to your dream.

Today we talk to Justin Siems who holds another one of those unique stories. Justin comes from an aviation family but didn’t really catch the bug early. As he went into college playing football for Ohio State University, he became more interested.

Juggling time between football and getting his private license, after school Justin went to flying full time and got the rest of his FAA ratings in North Carolina.

First he flew aerial survey, then he flew cargo on the Pilatus PC-12. Now he’s flying the Citation Latitude and enjoying life.
