Steve Knabe | Flight Program Review

“I was fortunate enough when I was taking a flight lesson in Nebraska, and airplane landed with a black cat on it’s tail- it was a Spartan plane. And there was a student there who said there is a flight school in Tulsa, Oklahoma that will teach you everything you need to know about flying.”

That’s all flight school alumni Steve Knabe needed to hear. From that moment on Steve went on to fly around world for the first time at 28, and has worked for a fortune 500 company for 22 years. Hear what else Steve has to say in the video below:

Video Transcript:

“My name is Steve Knabe and I grew up on a farm. I watched airplanes fly over our farm. In my mind I was figuring out where they were going. I always wanted to be on the airplane and be where they were going.

I got good advice from a gentleman who was 50 years old, he told me “if you ever want to try flying do it while you’re young”

I was fortunate enough when I was taking a flight lesson in Nebraska. An airplane landed with a black cat on it’s tail- it was a Spartan plane. And there was a student there who said ‘there is a flight school in Tulsa, Oklahoma that will teach you everything you need to know about flying.’ And it was four months later, I was at the Spartan School of Aeronautics.

I was able to get on a fortune 500 company, and I had my first around the world trip at 28. Presently, I work with another fortune 500 company and have been with them for 22 years.

In this job I’ve checked off over 100 different countries, all 50 states. Phenomenal from a kid who just dreamed to fly.”
