Aviation became a passion for Irving after a chance meeting with a commercial airline pilot. He quickly realized it wasn?t enough just to get a pilot?s license; the former inner city kid from Miami, Florida wanted adventure and to make a difference in the world. He launched his mission to bring real life aviation experiences to young people.
