Aviation has been in Conrad’s life from a young age due to his mother’s background at United Airlines and his grandfather’s ownership of a Cessna 182. Conrad was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and studied mechanical engineering at the University of Colorado in Boulder. After graduating he decided to pursue aviation and moved to Southern California for the good flying weather. Conrad joined Santa Monica Flyers to help aspiring pilots pursue their dream of flying, while encouraging safety and enthusiasm in general aviation. Outside of aviation, Conrad’s interests include photography, classic cars, and travel.
