Hello, I am Lyle Swallows, a local to the Matanuska Valley. When i was younger my dad worked remote telecommunications which enabled him to take me on the occasional helicopter flight to “assist” him in his work. this is when Alaska, all its beauty, and helicopters became cemented in my mind. After High-school I enlisted in the Marines to learn Aviation Maintenance where I spent 5 years with the V-22 Osprey Tilt-rotor.

From there I took an opportunity in aerospace working Final Production, Testing, and Refurbishment of the Falcon 9 Rockets at SpaceX. Always hungry to learn more I moved back to Alaska to begin my flight training and started working Helicopter Maintenance at Soloy Helicopters where I continue working today. Apart from aviation my interests lie heavily in Motorsports, Running, and Sailing.
