Mar 2017 Courtney Hintz (Florida)
Courtney Hintz is based atÂ KDTS, Destin Executive Airport, Destin, Florida.
I am currently a flight surgeon in the US Air Force, stationed at Hurlburt Field, FL. I was hooked on flying as soon as I took off with my instructor for our first flight lesson in a Piper Cherokee 2 years ago. After my residency in internal medicine, I decided to become a flight surgeon so I could combine my two passions of flying and medicine.
I fly as much as I can in my free time, and am working on my tailwheel endorsement now. I also love aerobatics! When I’m not in a general aviation aircraft, I enjoy the opportunity to fly in all kinds of military planes – and the Air Force pays me for it!
Private pilot – Nov 2015
Aircraft Flown: Â Piper Cherokee 180, Cessna 150, Cessna 172, Cessna Skywagon, Cirrus SR22, Super Decathlon, Pitts Special
