Growing up, Sid was fascinated by airliners taking off above his home in Mumbai, India and wanted to fly ever since. He came to the US just to learn to fly in 2008 and earned his pilot certificates in Arizona! Later on, he graduated with a Master of Science degree in Management Information Systems from Texas A&M University and worked in San Antonio, TX. While in Texas, he gained valuable experience flying ELT searches, cadet orientation flights, aerial photography and homeland security missions volunteering with the Civil Air Patrol. He moved to the Bay Area in 2016 and enjoys instructing at the Flight Center!
