Pilot and Entrepreneur Kenneth Klothe is recognized by Federal Aviation Administration
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has recognized the aviation achievements and 20+ year mishap-free safety record of Kenneth Klothe through inclusion in the prestigious FAA Airmen Certification Database.
This certification requires a minimum of 1,500 hours of flight time (1200 for Helicopters)
“I am honored by the certification,”
Anne Petty, HR Manager, adds that “Ken certainly sets the standard for the pilots running our flight operations. While we operate in often difficult and austere environments, we maintain the highest professional standards for flight personnel.”

Klothe has more than 6,000 hours flight experience on military and civil aircraft, including the A-4 and the E-2C.
