Martin's first memory of flying is 'flying right seat' in his father's
Navion when he was about 3 years old. That started his love of aviation
and from that point on he flew as much as he could.
first flying job was hauling skydivers out of Hastings, MI., during the
summer of 1999. He joined the Indiana Air National Guard 122nd Fighter
Wing in August of that same year.
flew F-16s with the 122nd from April 2002 through December 2009, which
included three combat tours in Iraq. He made the transition to the A-10
in January 2010, and is still flying the A-10s with the 122nd Fighter
Wing. Lt. Col. Curt Martin is anticipating another combat
deployment in the near future.
with his service to our country, Curt began flying corporate and
charter service with Netjets in 2005. This included flying
Citation X and Gulfstream 450, V, and 550 jets.
In July 2014 Curt made the move to United Airlines flying Boeing 757s and 767s out of O'Hare.
he's not flying A-10s for the Air Guard or airliners for United, Curt
is also an FAA certified parachute rigger and pro-rated skydiver with
instructor qualifications in tandem, static-line, and instructor
assisted freefall. Curt also instructs in wingsuit flying and
high-performance canopy (parachute) flying.
Curt owns and flies a vintage Cessna 120 that has been a part of his family for a long time.
