Meet Air Charter Specialist, Ben Wing 👋

“I was born in Boston and raised in Phoenix. I enlisted in the Army during my junior year of high school as an aviation operations specialist. My service included serving in Korea, Fort Campbell, and Fort Hood, with a notable distinction of becoming a Night Stalker with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. I am grateful to have toured the world with the Army deploying to Afghanistan, Cameroon, and Kuwait while visiting Ireland and Germany. 

 

Since getting out of the Army in 2019, I went to work as a Crew Scheduler with Envoy Air, gaining valuable experience in airline operations. Looking for a more dynamic role, I pursued my Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics degree from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and obtained the FAA Aircraft Dispatcher Certificate. This led me to work as a dispatcher with Berry Aviation and falling in love with the fast-paced world of on-demand cargo operations. 

After getting laid off, I came over to Ameriflight in April of this year. The transition working as an Air Charter Specialist has been seamless building upon my experience and client relationships I’ve carried over.

I balance my career with a busy family life. My girlfriend and I have five feral children, ranging from ages 7 to 16. When I’m not working, I like to take the family to go watch hockey, racing, baseball, football, etc. We’re always doing something! I also enjoy hunting, fishing and cheering on Tennessee (Go Big Orange!)”
