Paula’s insight and business experience took KingAirNation from just her & Carl to become a global player in the turboprop market. When she isn’t keeping Carl straight, she’s busy with their nine children. She is a very creative person and enjoys her rare quiet moments experimenting with cooking, sewing, and gardening.
Being a Pilot, A&P mechanic, FAA 145 Accountable Manager, and owner of three successful aviation businesses is the story of Carl’s calling in life. His passion is his family of 11 & growing them in faith and biblical integrity. Occasionally, you will find him taking a break from it all, flying “low & slow” and doing light aerobatics.
