My name is Michael Foss and I live in Oswego, IL.
I am 47 years old and have 4 wonderful children, Tanner(7/14/96 – 3/7/16), Drake, Chandler and Ellie.
I didn’t become interested in flying until my senior year in college at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I took a private pilot theory class as an elective and I was hooked. I changed my major from biology (pre-med) to aviation. I finished my degree and started flight instructing part-time while working full-time as a firefighter/paramedic. After a year and a half of instructing and some charter work I got hired by Great Lakes Airlines. I spent almost two years there then went to Air Wisconsin Airlines flying the Dornier 328 and Canadair CRJ-200. Eight years ago I left that job and came to ConAgra Foods. We fly 4 Lear-45’s, three based in Omaha, NE and one in Chicago (PWK), IL. Currently I am the chief pilot for our Chicago, IL (KPWK) base.
My dream of building an RV started in 1999 with my first visit to EAA’s airshow in OshKosh, WI. It has taken me some time to be in a position to build one and I’m pretty excited to finally be there! I’m developing this site to document my progress and to share my passion.
Let me know what you think!
The journey begins…
