Avidyne COO earns wings

Avidyne‘s Chief Operating Officer Patrick Herguth, as part of the company’s corporate incentive program to train aviators, has earn his private pilot certificate.

“When I started Avidyne in 1994 I wanted to create an opportunity for as many of our employees as possible to experience the utility of general aviation while working to making flying simpler and safer,” said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne’s President and CEO. “One of the first policies put in place at Avidyne was a 50% reimbursement of any type of flight training. We have supported a large number of employees in their primary training, CFI training and many other types of ratings. It is exciting to come to work every day and be surrounded by a pilot-centric culture.”

“I was new to the aviation industry when I started at Avidyne two years ago, and before that I never thought about becoming a pilot,” said Patrick Herguth, Avidyne’s COO. “Now I am attending my second Oshkosh show as a private pilot.”
