er. In 2007 I graduated from the US Naval Test Pilot School. As a result, I have now flown over 35 different types of aircraft including gliders, seaplanes, numerous types of helicopters (from the R-44 to the Merlin), and several high performance fixed-wing aircraft (including the T-38C Talon and F/A-18B Hornet). On 1 October 2013 I was promoted to Chief Warrant Officer Five (CW5); the highest warrant officer rank in the military. I recently returned from a 3-year tour of duty in the United Kingdom where I was serving as the US Army Exchange Test Pilot at the UK's Rotary Wing Test Squadron at Boscombe Down, England. There I flew the Gazelle, Apache, Merlin, Agusta 109E, H125, and the Griffin. I am now back at Fort Eustis, VA working as a Test Director and Experimental Test Pilot. Most likey I will retire next year with over 42 years of military service.
