About Cris Atkin
Born in 1966, Cris Atkin was just old enough to remember the moon landings. He has always had a healthy (?) interest in aviation, with the stated goal of being an astronaut. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout, and for a reward toured the Johnson Space Center, escorted by Dr. Don Lind. Cris earned his Private Pilot Certificate in 1985, and joined the Army in 1988. Using his GI Bill benefits, Cris earned his A&P, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Technology Management. He now works as an A&P, owns a Cessna 152 SparrowHawk, and flies whenever he can. He is working on his IFR, Commercial, and CFI.
