Mr. Gabe Patton
I love all things aviation! Prior to my teachng career I served for 21 years in the United States Air Force. I started my military career as an F-15 crew chief and retired as the production superintendent for an F-15E squadron right here in North Carolina. Throughout my military and civilian careers, I have had the opportunity to work with manned and unmanned aircraft all over the world. I have been a part of flight test programs, combat operations, training operations and was a member of Space Shuttle Discovery’s recovery team at it's alternate landing site at Edwards AFB, CA. I am very fortunate to be able to teach a subject that I feel so passionate about.
