Tim Gleeson Alumni Profile
Professional Flight '14
Flight instructor for Trident Aircraft

There are so many opportunities to take advantage of that make me and other students well-rounded individuals. I was able to develop first name relationships with most of my faculty within Aviation Technology Department and the college. I am comfortable approaching the faculty for anything, and they are always able to help. Purdue has a very good aviation reputation and network that I have been able to capitalize on. We have lots of deep connections to those in the industry, which is educational and often times helps students find jobs. 

Thanks go to:

My family for the continued support and encouragement.
Lisa Lewis, former Purdue Beechjet captain and my supervisor whom I spent more hours on an airplane with than any other single person.
Thomas Carney for the opportunity to fly Purdue’s Beechjet and increase my knowledge about weather in the classroom and strapped into the airplane.
All my flight instructors and faculty who taught me what I know and helped shape me as the pilot I am today, including: Larry Gross, Bernie Wulle, Mitch Grundman, and Steve Perkins.
The AT support staff who make everything work smoothly, who help keep students on track to graduate and be successful
