Global Aviation Pilot Gino Ceravolo

Line Pilot Gino Ceravolo joins the Global Aviation team with over 25 years flying experience. He currently pilots the Lear 35 adding it to a remarkable list of aircraft he has enjoyed flying over the years.

“The Lear 35 is ideal for customer requests for shorter flights and flying into smaller and mountainous airports,” says Ceravolo. “The Learjet is fun to fly because of its high-performance characteristics.”

“Flying for Global Aviation has been a great step in my career. I am impressed by the professionalism of the employees, the diversity of the aircraft, the high-quality facilities and the amount of services available,” says Ceravolo.

Ceravolo began his aviation pursuits immediately out of high school as a Navy aircraft handler. Immediately following the Navy, he began his college education and flight training in Hollywood, Florida. Ceravolo washed and fueled airplanes in exchange for flight lessons. He became a flight instructor and worked in line service while finishing his degree and Airline Transport Pilot (ATP). Ceravolo soon made a move to Colorado and his first pilot job flying cargo in a turbocharged multi-engine piston airplane.

Ceravolo has piloted a wide-variety of aircraft over the years including an air ambulance turbo-prop around the Rocky Mountain region, a Hawker 700, a Lear 35, an Airbus 320 and a King Air. Upon moving to Portland, Ceravolo flew an air ambulance Lear 36 oceanic to many destinations between Portland and Asia.

With so many aircraft and destinations behind him, one flight stands out above the rest to Ceravolo, “During the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, I flew athletes to Burbank, California so they could discuss their medal wins on The Tonight Show. I was able to wait backstage and spend time with the athletes.”

After many years of living in Florida and Colorado, Ceravolo is enjoying his home in Southwest Washington. His family is taking full advantage of four acres with the addition of goats, geese, ducks, and chickens. “We have apple, fig, and pear trees along with a garden that produces many different vegetables and herbs,” says Ceravolo. He also enjoys traveling with his family and getting outdoors for some biking.
