Director of Operations / Tour Pilot / Instructor
In addition to flying tours at Bluebird Aviation, Ben also flies regional jets for the airlines.
Ben began flying 13 years ago in Pennsylvania. He attended the University of Colorado Boulder where he graduated with a degree in Geology. After working in the mineral exploration industry in Alaska for several years he returned to flying, and took a job flying Scenic Air Tours and teaching students in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Realizing his love for mountain flying, Ben returned to Colorado to start Bluebird Aviation. While flying here in Broomfield he has obtained his instrument, commercial, flight instructor, CFII, air-transport-pilot rating, and CRJ type rating.
He has since logged over 3000 hours of experience teaching students, flying scenic air-tours, and flying for the airlines.
