Chris comes to the Dakota Cub team fresh from the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities trained in aerospace engineering. He graduated in May of 2011 and started with us in June after getting settled here in South Dakota. Chris hails from Two Rivers, WI, which is approximately 10 minutes northeast of Manitowoc, WI.
Sports, including football, baseball, and track, are Chris’ primary hobbies (he played for the U of M Gophers football team as a corner). He enjoys sesame chicken and the TV show Scrubs.
Chris applied to Dakota Cub on a whim, seeing a job posting online. He first became interested in aviation when he visited a local airshow in 6th grade and decided to pursue engineering. He is looking forward to continuing to gain practical experience here at DCA and learning more about the world we operate in. Chris has had an intro flight in our Super 18 LT and is excited to eventually work towards his pilot’s license.
We are happy to have Chris on board and hope that you will welcome him when you see him with us next!
