Ever since Grant was a young boy, his passion has been flying. With Russ College’s fleet of modern training aircraft and highly skilled training program, the choice was clear that Ohio University was the best fit to train him for the rigorous airline industry. He was awarded the David Hoover Memorial Scholarship and the Columbia Downing Scholarship. Recently Grant completed his flight operations Management internship with St. Louis based, Trans States Airlines.
Grant has competed in four National Intercollegiate Flying Association Regional competitions and three National competitions, finishing 11th in the nation for Aircraft Recognition. He also has directed safety operations for the flight team, bringing home the National American Airlines Safety Award for Ohio University, beating schools that included Embry Riddle-Daytona and the Air Force Academy.
In his free time, Grant loves to fly, compete, study aircraft, and sketch.
