Long ago and far, far away, Alan began his career as an attorney by working on whatever case came his way in the form of criminal and family law work.

However, his passion has always been aviation. He learned to fly when he was 16. In July 2016, he locked himself away for several weeks in his law library and worked on passing the test to become an ATP. In between learning to fly and getting his ATP, he became a CFI, aerobatic pilot who flies in airshows in his “Kate,” the Japanese Bomber, and an AT-6.
