“I had the pleasure of working closely with Dave in an executive capacity for a number of years on domestic and international projects with Avmax Group, WMM Partners Ltd., and L3 Communications.
The monetary scope of these projects at times reaches into the multi-millions, lending an extreme focus on our message delivery every step of the way. Dave’s talent of tapping into his wealth of varied and impressive experience for the purposes of relaying a message via written word was always extraordinary.
A great deal of our corporate success was due to Dave’s ability to tell a story at the boardroom table or on paper and then to deliver above what was expected.
As a colleague, Dave is unwavering in his integrity, and as a writer/storyteller he is inspiring and motivating. People with his experience and abilities are rare, and I have no doubt that his personal success story will continue.”

I have known Dave for many years since we were in college. He was an adventurous young man who was bent on flying. After leaving college, he started his dream of flying. However, before getting in the cockpit, he wanted to know everything about aviation from the grassroots up.
He was an apprentice, a skilled mechanic, a bush pilot, and finally a captain with a national airline. Dave even started and ran his own cargo airline between Miami and Guyana. When he flew for Guyana Airways, Dave was very involved in ferrying troops into the hinterland to assist the army in aborting a revolution.
In his later life, Dave became an author and freelance journalist writing about his exploits in the several countries in which he lived. He has authored and published two best-sellers, Kidnapped – A Living Nightmare and Bush Flying – A Pilot’s Nightmare.
I look forward to his future books and aviation blogs which I’m sure will be exciting and enjoyable.
I have a few more requests out. How many do you feel would be enough?
Capture the Moment
The story of an aviation event that almost took the life of the pilot during his early days of bush flying. Flying in the heavily forested interior of the only English-speaking country in South America, you will fly along with the author, and witness the dramatic events that unfolded in the early days of his aviation career.
This is a true account of the incredible personal tragedy that befell the author during his four years spent in China, developing a new aviation business in this unique country of well over a Billion and a half heavily controlled population by its government.
