Owen Bruce is currently a Program Analyst at the Federal Aviation Administration and is a STEM Aviation and Space Education (AVSED) Program Outreach Representative. Owen grew up in Queens, NY near JFK Airport and saw aircraft such as the Concorde and B747s fly over his home. This inspired him to start his aviation career as a 14-year-old at Aviation High School in Long Island City, NY. He went on to earn his airframe certificate from Aviation High School, a degree from Hampton University in Airway Science, an aircraft dispatcher certificate and he served in the Air Force Reserves as an avionics technician.
Owen’s diverse aviation experience also includes airport operations and security as well as working for airlines like Pan Am and British Airways and lesser-known airlines such as MGM Grand Air and Business Express (Delta Connection). Owen is passionate about introducing a new generation to aviation careers and is interested in working all who share the same passion.
