Dan received his pilots license when he was 17, and went to school for his A&P right out of high school. He learned to paint while working nights after school at the Beechcraft dealer at Eppley Airfield in Omaha. He received his A&P license in 1979 and went to work for Central Air Transport in northwest Ontario. There he maintained a fleet of float planes comprised of a Dehaviland Otter, Beaver, Beech 18, Cessna 180, and an Aztec on gear at the airport in Pickle Lake, Ontario.
