Roy Becker – aka ‘The King of Stoke’ – first took to the skies by Kiteboard before realizing 30 ft of air just wasn’t enough to satisfy his craving for altitude. Born and Raised in FL he was naturally drawn to the sea. He immersed himself in all things watersports and graduated with a B.S. in Ocean Engineering. After ‘flying a few desk jobs’ during summer internships, Roy knew 9 to 5 monotony would never be for him. Learning about the state of the aviation industry from his friends in the Millennial Wings organization, Roy actively began working on his ratings while simultaneously reigniting his childhood passion for aviation. Working full time as a Field Engineer & keeping laser focus on accomplishing his aviation goals, Roy has progressed from Private to Multi-Engine Commercial Pilot & CFI in under 2 years. He joined the Gulf Coast Aviation Team in March 2019 and is ‘stoked’ to share his love for aviation with his students everyday.
