Bryan is a local guy hailing from Edinboro Pa. He first began flying at the young age of 10 by taking some airplane rides and getting some stick time flying Piper Cubs at Dart Airport in Mayville, NY. Later in his late teens his aviation mentor Ken (Vern) Bittner helped Bryan get a job at North Coast Flight School where he worked to take flying lessons. Bryan earned his private pilot certificate in September of 2008 at the age of 19. After some time away from aviation, Bryan  returned to NCFS as an AGI/IGI and is now a commercial pilot and a certified flight instructor. In addition to flight instructing, running the drone program, and teaching the the AERO ACADEMY classes, he enjoys hunting, fishing, playing with his band, as well as spending time with his wife and two daughters.
