Brett Abbott was first exposed to flying by his neighbor, who would take him up in his beloved “Yellowbird,” an Aeronca seaplane. The seed was planted and soon Abbott was flying Piper J-3 Cubs along the New Hampshire seacoast. At a university networking event, Abbott connected with alumni who introduced him to their Falcon 900 EX and he was hooked. Since then, Abbott’s been able to fly all over the world and in several different aircraft.
“Currently, I’m a part of a phenomenal and forward-thinking flight department for a leading medical device company,” Abbott said. “It’s powerful to think we play a role in their success, even if it’s a small one. Every day is different and poses its own unique set of challenges in business aviation and working through those obstacles has allowed our team to create something pretty special.”
