The End


Post Image

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I must close my doors due to personal reasons.  I have tried everything possible to keep Fast Aviation going and it is not physically or emotionally possible anymore.  I feel that I have let everyone down. I let my employees down. I let my family down. I let the industry down. I let myself down.  Hell, I even let my dog down. But the person I let down the most is Ryder. […]

1966 Beechcraft Bonanza V35TC: To Rebuild or Part Out-That is the Question!


2017 has ended and there is a new year upon us!  For me, 2017 was a year of learning experiences.  I especially learned that when you’re not emotionally strong, your business WILL suffer.  I believe I did my best to hide the personal issues in my life but in the end it still greatly affected my business.  Not because I was making bad decisions, but because I had an obligation to focus on my son and my shattering life at […]

Experiences: The Secrets That We Keep


I thought I would come clean with my secret. The secret I kept for 7 months from everyone I knew and worked with.  It was a hard decision, but I knew I had to do it.  I learned so much in the development of the new version of HangarSwap but we suffered along the way.  It was a very rough road and I’m surprised I survived.  Normally people would cover up the emotions with developing something huge and keeping it […]

You Have No Excuses Now! Third Class Medical Reform


When someone tells me they can’t get a medical or don’t try to get one because they believe they won’t get it, I call them on it. Now, this is not the case with everyone but a lot of pilot’s are timid to try to get a medical after a health issue arises because once the FAA denies you, it becomes difficult to obtain it again. I am the pilot that had open heart surgery and has a third class […]

Beyond the Girlboss Moment: Turning Aluminum into Gold


  I am beyond humbled and honored to be featured in Girlboss. For those of you who don’t know who Girlboss is, it was started by Sophia Amoruso, who has a clothing company called Nasty Gal, which derived from being kicked off eBay. She was an inspiration to me when we got kicked off eBay less than 2 years ago. It was what pushed me to start Hangar Swap so my fellow aviators had an amazing place to buy and sell […]
