Travis Bender – Marketing Manager

Travis has been involved with San Carlos Flight Center for six years now. After being fortunate enough to win the Upwind Summer Scholarship in 2016, he earned his wings that summer, and hasn’t stopped flying since, even going on to earn his instrument rating in 2020! Today, he coordinates SCFC’s marketing campaigns on a variety of mediums, where some of his latest projects include designing promotional materials, overlooking social media accounts, and serving as one of the project leads on the new SCFC website redevelopment. In addition, he is also an organizer of the BAY FLIGHT aviation conference, where he seeks out speakers to come to the Bay Area to share their stories and topics with the general aviation community.

He works remotely the majority of the time, so while he is unfortunately outside of the office, he is available by email. Whether you are interested in speaking at BAY FLIGHT or just want to discuss the best places to fly to, Travis is always happy to talk! When he’s not in the air, Travis is currently attending college for his Business and Economics degree up in the Pacific Northwest, where he also competes on his school’s NCAA swim team.
