Nick Nelson love for aviation originated as a boy in his home town of Detroit Michigan. There he became familiar with aircraft from his fathers old WWII films and commercial aircraft overflights with occasional surprise visits by the legendary Concorde. Aviation interests further progressed as his first flight was in a Cessna 172 seaplane over the Mackinac Bridge in northern Michigan. From there he soloed in a Cessna 152 at the age of 15 and received his private pilot license at the age of 16. Nick currently resides in Phoenix Arizona where he can be found honing his photography skills at any airport that he can get to. His current ambition is collaborating with other aviation buffs on air-to-air photography and is always willing to take the time for others in the aviation community.
