[Pilot-Employer Matchmaking] 

Are you a Pilot-in-Transition [from 5 years left in-service to 20 years civilian] wanting to Create Multiple Income Streams [yes Pilot-Employer Matchmaking is one Path] by Elevating Your Personal Brand?!?! 


Personal Branding |

The Ascension Leadership Certification is the Glide Path to Your Successful Aviation Industry Employment through MATCHMAKING [Not Headhunting, Recruiting, or "Staffing"]!!!



Awesome Aviation Leaders like Stacy Sheard and Marc Stanley, Mil2Civ Helicopter Trainers & Mentors, have Identified Multiple Key Issues with Transitioning Pilots


A few are:

  • It's not What you Know...It's Who you Know. Network and Connect-with-Purpose. 
  • Have a Purpose!!! Your personality is Your Advantage!!! 
  • Your Personal Brand. LinkedIn, Resumé, Dress, Personality.
  • Need More Hours
  • Seasonal Flying Available
  • Overseas Contracts Available
  • Pilot Shortages
  • Pilot Career Progression Issues


Also, when you are Transitioning, you need to pick 1 of the 3 because you are, at best, going to get 2 of the 3 for your first few years in the Civilian World:

  1. Personal Fulfillment
  2. Professional Fulfillment
  3. Financial Fulfillment



Ascension is Hero for Army Helicopter Pilots wanting to Discover Their Story and Core Message to Create Multiple Income Streams as an Author, Trainer, Speaker, Consultant, or Expert [yes, Matchmaking is one Path] while Attracting Instant and Ongoing Clients. Ultimately Building them a Business of Fulfillment Elevating Lives from Local to Global


I believe, our Army Helicopter Pilots are Heroes on the Battlefield but come home to join the Civilian World with a Gap in Your Potential and in Your Heart.


You have a Life Story to Tell, you have Life Lessons to Teach, and you have a Core Message to Share with the World.


And I believe that You can Build an Authority Brand with Your Experience and you can Instantly Enroll High Quality Clients, maybe More than You’re Already Attracting and You can Build a Business of Fulfillment while You’re Elevating Lives from Local to Global.


Ascension’s Leadership Certification | Elevation Glide Path is a multi-step process taking our Pilots from Heroes on the Battlefields to Heroes at Home!!!


Ascension Leadership Certification: 
1. Discover Your Story
2. Develop Your Core Message
3. Create Your Content & Programs
4. Structure Your Pricing
5. Attract Your Initial Clients
6. Develop Your Enrollment System
7. Deliver to You Instant & Ongoing Clients

Cost of Inaction [COI]

Although I can’t predict what you'll make in your lifetime, I would like you to consider what it will Cost you if you don’t take action on Your Vision.

When I departed the Army in August 2014, I thought I was hot shit and going to blaze into the civilian world with my head held high…and I did…and it cost me dearly.

I went from $100,000 a year to $0. The VA disability process was a quick, and unpredictable 6-month process where I finally saw SOME money in my checking account. I went from $100k to $22k, divorced and with 2 kids in Texas to pay child support for. If you think the courts cared, they didn’t. I still had to pay based on my PREVIOUS $100k income.

My assets…seized, my car…repossessed. My 3-bedroom apartment…now with 2 college-aged roommates because I can’t afford my rent by myself. I’m a 34-year old war hero and I feel more shame than I’ve ever felt before. Due to Executive Recruiters NOT calling me, I don’t know what to do for myself much less be able to help anyone else.

Police Department Position?…Nope. VA Hospital Position?…Nope. Over 20 USA Jobs Positions?…Nope!!

Flash forwards to today and I’m heading on 38, remarried to a wonderful woman, with a step son and 2 amazingly wild toddler girls [1 & 2].

I'm now fulfilled as I get to help Army Pilots get traction on their lives…up to 5 years before they leave the Army.

I’ve created a Glide Path that allows you to make money for who you are…not what you do. You can use your story to make a living while you’re entering the civilian world. Also, if Matchmaking is part of your plan…I’ve got you covered. It’s not what you know but Who You Know!!!

Matchmaking is, by design, a better, faster, more cost effective, and fulfilling process because it’s truly filled through Relationships within the Aviation Industry.

I can’t predict that all the stars will align for your path and process, but I can assure you of what it will cost if you don’t start your traction now!!!
