Bryan Bowen

Bryan is out of Redding in beautiful northern California. An Oregonian at heart, he relocated to Redding in 2018 for work. Bryan has been a Helicopter EMS pilot for REACH air medical services for the past 14 years. When he is not flying helicopters, Bryan is building and flying Bush planes and spending time with his lovely wife and two boys. Introduced to STOL Drags in 2017 at the High Sierra Fly-In, Bryan has been feverishly upgrading his 2006 Lycoming powered Kitfox 5 to stay competitive and is currently building a new Kitfox 7 to compete next year. Born into an aviation family and raised in a Cessna 180 lead to Bryan’s intense passion for aviation. Both his father and brother are airline pilots leaving Bryan as a bit of a black sheep for heading down the rotor head path. Aviation talk still dominates the family conversations much to the amusement of the wife’s in the family. Spark up a conversation with Bryan about aviation and discover his enthusiasm.
