Curt Martin's first memory of flying is 'flying right seat' in his father's Navion when he was about 3 years old. That started his love of aviation and from that point on he flew as much as he could.

Curt's first flying job was hauling skydivers out of Hastings, MI., during the summer of 1999. He joined the Indiana Air National Guard 122nd Fighter Wing in August of that same year.

Curt flew F-16s with the 122nd from April 2002 through December 2009, which included three combat tours in Iraq. He made the transition to the A-10 in January 2010, and is still flying the A-10s with the 122nd Fighter Wing.  Lt. Col. Curt Martin is anticipating another combat deployment in the near future.

Concurrent with his service to our country, Curt began flying corporate and charter service with Netjets in 2005.  This included flying Citation X and Gulfstream 450, V, and 550 jets.

In July 2014 Curt made the move to United Airlines flying Boeing 757s and 767s out of O'Hare.

When he's not flying A-10s for the Air Guard or airliners for United, Curt is also an FAA certified parachute rigger and pro-rated skydiver with instructor qualifications in tandem, static-line, and instructor assisted freefall. Curt also instructs in wingsuit flying and high-performance canopy (parachute) flying.  

Curt owns and flies a vintage Cessna 120 that has been a part of his family for a long time.

You are invited to join us at the Hoosier Air Museum at 7PM on Monday, February 12, for what promises to be an interesting presentation!   

Admission to this special presentation is free and will include complimentary snacks and beverages.

We hope to see you here!
