Bio to follow

Logan Fedorchak - CFII

My name is Logan Fedorchak and I am 26 years old and am a CFI/CFII. I graduated Kent State University in spring of 2023 and am working to eventually work for a major airline. Growing up I always liked airplanes and as a kid I always wanted to have RC helicopters/planes. Even though I thought they were cool, I just never thought that I would be able to do this as a career. I never had flown commercially until I was 22 years old, and I remember looking out the window thinking “I want to be able to do this for the rest of my life”, and from that day forward I looked into schooling and went for it. Learning to fly is something that is hard and demanding, but I cannot think of a more enjoyable career than this.
