Global Aviation’s Captain Mike Turoski retires

There is no doubt that 2016 has been a landmark year for Global Aviation’s Captain Mike Turoski. He began by accepting the prestigious Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award for 50+ years of flying with flawless safety operations. Turoski finishes 2016 by celebrating his retirement.

Global Aviation featured Turoski and his impressive career recently when he received the Master Pilot Award. “Mike Turoski’s professionalism, leadership and personality will be missed here at Global Aviation,” said Global Aviation President Flo Newton. “We hope that he enjoys retirement and the new found time with friends and family.”

When asked about his plans for retirement, Turoski quickly replies, “Grandkids!” Turoski is looking forward to “reacquainting myself with the grandchildren” and that will mean splitting time between his three children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild in Washington and Montana.

While Turoski says he will miss the great camaraderie of pilots and staff, he will not completely step away from the pilot seat in his retirement. One big project ahead is finishing his Corben Junior Ace amateur built airplane. He also plans to get involved in the aviation museum in Wenatchee, Washington, as well as spend time working on his house, workshop, and antique VW cars and van.
