Developing a love for aviation at a young age, Michael McCurdy became a private pilot and recognized his passion for aviation instruction. Born in Indiana, he has lived in South Carolina since 1985. He worked for FEMA during the 2010 Tennessee floods and other natural disasters. Michael was a private pilot for then Congressman Tim Scott and state Attorney General Alan Wilson. He currently operates two flight schools in Charleston. Michael is a Boy Scout explorer troop counselor, granting all scouts access to the full motion simulator at his flight schools. The majority of troop members are minority youth, and his goal is to demonstrate being a pilot is within reach for all. Michael looks to grow membership during his tenure with the board. He currently supports this goal by sponsoring membership in the association for each of his flight students. Michael previously served on the FAA Safety Team.
