About Brent Owens
Brent works as a management pilot for a large fractional operation in Ohio. He started flying in high school in Oklahoma and earned his private certificate his senior year. He attended college at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma while building flight time. Subsequent ratings were obtained at North American Institute of Aviation in Las Cruces, NM. He has flown a myriad of airplanes in his 25+ years in the industry. Although he currently flies a Falcon 2000 at work, his real passion is light airplanes. In 2005 he started building a Vans RV-8 kit, which was completed in 2011. Prior to that, Brent restored a Bucker J?ngster I biplane and a 1946 Ercoupe. He also taught for many years helping people obtain private, instrument, and commercial certificates, along with teaching tailwheel transitions. In his current role, he is exposed to industry-leading training and safety practices, such as Threat and Error Management, Safety Management Systems, and Crew Resource Management. Brent is also the creator of iFLYblog.com, a general aviation blog that discusses a wide range of topics applicable to pilots.
