Embarking on an Unexpected Journey

For Mindy, the path to becoming an aviation sales professional was anything but conventional. Initially on track for a career in medicine, Mindy’s fascination with aerospace medicine sparked an unexpected revelation: her true passion lay in flying itself. This epiphany led her to transition from pre-med courses to pursuing her pilot’s license at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

‘While researching different types of doctors I could be, I was hooked on the idea of Aerospace Medicine and thought of how glamorous it could be to take care of pilots and perhaps fly on aircraft all over the world taking care of pilots and crew. Then – it hit me like a ton of bricks – I suddenly realized how much I wanted to be ON airplanes and wasn’t so intrigued with the medicine part any longer, and so I started to research how to become a pilot.’


Beyond the Clouds: Discovering Personal Joys

Outside the realm of aviation, Mindy finds solace in the tranquility of fishing and spending time outdoors. Growing up on the shores of a Florida lake, she developed a deep connection with nature, a bond she continues to nurture to this day. Her fishing expeditions serve as a refreshing escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

‘My parents gifted me a fishing-equipped kayak for Christmas one year in college, which is when I really got hooked on fishing. I would take it out all the time in the intercoastal while attending ERAU in Daytona Beach, FL – commonly coming home with fish in the cooler and would filet them up for dinner. A flight student’s dream….”free” food!’

Navigating the Skies of Professionalism

As an Aircraft Sales Rep at Lone Mountain, Mindy’s days are as diverse as the aircraft she handles. Whether she’s liaising with clients from her home office or jet-setting to meet them in person, each day presents new challenges and opportunities to excel. Her dedication to simplifying the process for clients ensures a seamless experience from start to finish, reflecting Lone Mountain’s commitment to customer satisfaction.

A Journey Fueled by Passion

Mindy’s passion for aviation extends far beyond the realm of sales. For her, the most rewarding moments come from fulfilling the dreams of first-time aircraft owners. The sheer joy and excitement radiating from clients as they take ownership of their aircraft serve as a constant reminder of the profound impact aviation has on people’s lives.

‘The most rewarding deals tend to be when I get to sell to first-time aircraft owners. It is exciting to make someone’s lifelong dream come true, and you can feel that throughout the process. The vibe is electric, and you can’t help but to be on Cloud 9!’

Flying Towards Success: Building Lasting Relationships

At the heart of Mindy’s approach to sales lies a commitment to honesty and transparency. By maintaining open lines of communication and delivering truthful feedback, she forges strong bonds with her clients built on trust and reliability. Her dedication to providing exceptional service extends beyond the transaction itself, ensuring that clients feel supported every step of the way.

Advice from Above: Navigating the Aircraft Market

For first-time buyers navigating the complex world of aircraft ownership, Mindy offers invaluable advice: enlist the help of a trustworthy broker. With their expertise and guidance, the stress of the purchasing process is alleviated, allowing buyers to focus on their excitement for the journey ahead.

‘Buying my own airplane for the first time was the best experience I could have given myself. Not only did I get to fulfill one of my own dreams, but I got to sit on the other side of the table and feel what it’s like to be a buyer.’
