Here at Air Unlimited, our pilots eat, sleep, and breathe aviation. Most of our pilots even love to fly or rebuild airplanes in their spare time. A few of our pilots have dedicated their lives to flying and decided at a very young age to pursue careers in aviation. Ed Moon is one of these pilots. You may have already met him on a flight to Treasure Cay.
Ed decided that he wanted to be a pilot when he was just 14 years old. This might seem a bit ambitious for a teenager, but with his passion and dedication, he knew he could make it happen. He pursued his dream via a long career that eventually brought him to join Air Unlimited’s skilled team of pilots, who all pilot flights to Treasure Cay and Marsh Harbour.
It is difficult for Ed to pick a favorite place that he’s flown to, because he’s been to 50 states and 13 countries. For him, it’s easier to choose his favorite locations based on their elevation. Leadville, Colorado at 10,152 feet, Death Valley, California at 282 feet and Kitty Hawk, and North Carolina at seven feet are three of his favorites. The Abaco Islands are at the top of his list as well. He never tires of the ocean views and loves visiting Treasure Cay. Before he joined the Air Unlimited team, he had visited the Abacos many times, so he was familiar with the island life. He’s adapted to the relaxed island culture and even finds himself sitting in a swing on his dock to unwind after a long day.
Like our other pilots, Ed’s love for flying extends past his work duties. When he’s not flying with us, he’s usually flying his seaplane and enjoying the view over any body of water. He plans to add to his experience by learning how to fly helicopters. He mentioned that if he wasn’t a pilot, he would be an engineer, which is fitting as both careers require a lot of hard work and extensive training.
