Heather Huitt
Aviation Officer

Flight has intrigued Heather since she was a little girl growing up in a small Missouri farm town. As soon as the opportunity presented itself in college to get in the air, Heather pursued skydiving. She packed student parachutes to afford to skydive – logging over 700 jumps and obtaining a D-License and Jumpmaster rating.

As a graduate with a master’s degree in Aviation Safety, Heather began working in aviation law dealing with transactions of business jets as well as FAA enforcement and Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) research. She received her pilot’s license and became a commercial pilot with an instrument rating during this time.

Heather then had an opportunity to work directly with clients flying privately. She enjoyed interacting with and serving clients at the airport by providing a high level of service to ensure their whole trip was exceptional.

Outside of aviation, Heather loves to spend time with her three children and is active with her horses and dogs.
