Ken Gibson


Ken knows what it is like to make dreams happen. As the second oldest in a family of 14 children, he knew he wanted to fly since he was a child. Initially he self taught himself with the Microsoft flight simulator program on his Commodore 64 computer. He can't believe this is where it all started but it is.

Ken remained focused on his dream, holding a variety of jobs including those of a Construction worker, Plant Mechanic, Certified EMT, and Boston Firefighter to list a few that helped him pay for proper flight training. Perseverance and dedication eventually helped him obtain his Airline Transport and Flight Instructor certifications. Ken holds a dual undergrad degree in aviation from Bridgewater State University and an Executive MBA degree from Northeastern. Mr Gibson owns and operates his own aviation training organization and Through Project Takeoff, Ken wants to help aspiring children and teens to realize that if they have a dream and dedication, they can achieve whatever they desire.
