Traveling the globe brings about memorable experiences. Pelletier likes to share stories and compare his time flying in India to flights in the United States. “It was a very different world and challenging. Just to get a recent radar image during my preflight was impossible at times – and I was working for a major carrier,” remembers Pelletier. “I really gained an appreciation for the experience of flying back home in the USA.”

Pelletier loves to see new places and enjoys spending his personal time travelling and taking road trips. He frequently can be found on his motorcycle or flying his personal plane – a Grumman Lynx. After living in New Hampshire, Florida, Washington, Alaska, Wyoming and Idaho, Pelletier says he likes Oregon best, but Alaska will always have a place in his heart.
