Michael Dutton – Media Director

Michael joined the Flight Center team in the summer of 2014 while doing flight training as a helicopter student. He first worked on Flight Line while helping out with the live streams for the safety seminar program. Over the years, he shifted his focus more into video production and currently works as the Flight Center’s Media Director. He also works part-time with NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System as an assistant analyst. A San Jose State University alumni, Michael graduated with a degree in Aviation Operations. Michael is a private pilot rated in both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft, though helicopters remain his first love. He is currently working on his instrument and commercial ratings. Outside of aviation, he spends his time hiking, gaming with friends, and consulting with the dark arts keeping up to date with helicopter knowledge.
