Director of Operations & Chief Pilot
Craig came to Fort Wayne in 2007 after earning Bachelor of Science degrees at Indiana State University in Professional Aviation and Aerospace Administration. He has earned an Airline Transport Pilot certificate plus single, multi, glider, and instrument ratings in addition to Gold Seal CFI, CFII, and MEI certificates and an SF50 Vision Jet type rating. He has taught tailwheel and aerobatics for hundreds of hours in a Super Decathlon and was the Chief Simulator Instructor at ISU. In his 10,000+ flight hours Craig has developed two passions: helping customers get to their meetings and vacations as smoothly and safely as possible and helping fellow pilots become fully competent and confident throughout the flight envelope through aerobatic and tailwheel instruction (although he does also love sharing the fun of a good “$100 hamburger” trip with new and old friends alike!). He joined Sweet Aviation full time in March 2017 after spending the previous two and a half years running a non-profit auto repair ministry. He and his wife Rachel have five boys and are active members of Fellowship Missionary Church.
