Chicago Chief Pilot

Philadelphia Chief Pilot
Nate Shedlock has been an avid sim pilot since the days of FS4, 3.5 floppy disks, and monochrome CRTs. At age 14, Nate took his first 'real-world' flight in a Piper Cherokee out of KAVP and was hooked. At age 24, he achieved his Private Pilot`s Certificate in single-engine aircraft. Nate has always attributed his success in real-world flying to the realism offered through flight simulation and VATSIM, as well as an incredible real-world flight instructor that taught him how to fly the aircraft like creating a work of art while maintaining a working knowledge of the science. Nate currently resides about 45 minutes outside KPHL. In the real world, Nate is a certified Emergency Medical Technician with goals to achieve his Paramedic rating within the next two years. Nate has years of managerial experience, including training and empowering his employees to be the best they can be. He remains humbly grateful for the opportunity to be Philadelphia`s Chief Pilot and hopes he can serve his staff well. Nate maintains a `virtual open-door policy`, as he has with any managerial position he`s had. So feel free to contact him at any time with questions, or to find out more about making Philadelphia your home HUB.
