Hello!

I'm a private pilot in Franklin, TN based out of John Tune (KJWN) just west of downtown Nashville. I'm currently renting an Arrow IV from a local flight school and using their 172s to take friends up for local flights. I'm a low-time pilot (about 200 hours) but most of it is cross country in the Southeastern US in a fun little straight tail 1956 172 that I used to own with a few partners. That plane was destroyed in a tornado that hit John Tune in 2020 - the week COVID arrived and shut everything down. Not the best week of my life!

I'm actively shopping for an S35 or V35 and looking forward to being an owner member of the Beech community.

Outside aviation I'm a US Army veteran (field artillery officer), husband and father, and my day job is pastoring a small Presbyterian church here in Middle Tennessee. Besides flying I love travel and sailing and have done quite a bit of bareboating in the British Virgin Islands over the years.

I'm planning to be in Tullahoma later this week for the Beech Party. Would love to meet up and get to know some folks!

Matt

Thanks Tony! I did my private pilot training at KTPL in 1999! The company at the time was Summit Aviation. I have such fond memories of that airport! My long xcountry was KTPL to KCLL to KAUS and back to KTPL. After I got my ticket I used to go fly around over Stillhouse Hollow Lake or do touch and goes at KILE. I was stationed at Ft. Hood at the time. Lot's of great memories!

My wife and I spent some time in Franklin last Thanksgiving and seriously gave some thought to moving there. It’s a beautiful town.

Matthew, we recently moved our office from Nashville to Franklin, we're in the old bank building at 198 E. Main Street just down from Public Square and next door to the Harpeth Hotel. Stop in and say hi!

Use the side door, entrance to Simmons Bank and elevator to 2nd floor, Suite 203

We don't do pistons, so can't help in the Bonanza search, but the coffee is hot.

If you don't know about it, make sure you look up the Nashville IMC group on Facebook or sign up through FAA wings program for reminders. It meets on the last Tuesday of every month at BNA. Great group of local pilots and we typiy have anywhere from 45-75 people show up. Look forward to meeting you there. Safe travels and best of luck on an airplane.
