Derek Vento

I found a niche for public speaking and aviation early on during my years of high school and ultimately realized, I wanted to give back to the community. I come from a family of those that have served, as my step father was a Huey and Chinook pilot, and is now a corporate pilot flying the Sikorsky S-76D. My mother was a flight attendant for TWA in the 80s and currently works as a CSR at FlightSafety Intl. I'm an air traffic controller at Atlanta TRACON and current student pilot.
