About Drew Kemp
Drew Kemp is a pilot and flight instructor based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Born and raised in Berkeley, he cajoled his way into a job at the Oakland Airport and started flying at age 15 in the Champion Citabria. He soloed at 16, and then perfected a 10-minute aerobatic routine, which he demonstrated for the DPE on his checkride. Two weeks after receiving his Private, he and his 19 year old friend ferried a new 7ACA Champ from Wisconsin back to OAK by way of El Paso. Now on his third career (he was previously a roadie for some major rock & roll bands back in the ‘70s, then had a 30 year career in engineering), you can usually find him at KOAK enjoying a free FBO cappuccino, if he’s not up torturing some poor, unsuspecting pilot. Drew is also on the Board of Directors of KidsCareEverywhere, and travels to developing countries, teaching the PEMSoft Mobile Pediatric Emergency Medicine Application to Doctors.
