CHP"s Air Operations

Golden Gate Div. CHP Air Operations

I will be explaining the function of the California Highway Patrol air operations, from the state level down to the division level. Covering the types of aircraft we deploy along with their unique missions and how we assist our department, other agencies, along with the public at large. 

Born in Thailand, but raised in the Bay Area, I had always dreamed of becoming a professional pilot. Finally earning my Private Pilot license in 2004 and my Commercial license in 2008, I started my path as many pilots do by becoming a flight instructor. This quickly opened up opportunities to then move into aerial surveying and charter work. Eventually I wanted to seek out something more fulfilling and joined the California Highway Patrol in 2012, working in Compton and Redwood City, until 2014 when I had the opportunity to join the CHP Golden Gate Division Air Operations unit becoming a fixed wing pilot and then adding the title of instructor for the unit a few years later.

Novato Space Museum

There is a need to have permanent space exhibits in the Bay Area to help educate children about the exciting history of space exploration, and to increase the public’s understanding that a strong global commitment toward future space travel is an important key to accelerating our civilization’s development. The emphasis will be on the history of space exploration, and how discoveries in science and technology allowed the U.S. to be a leader in space travel.

This is especially important in California, because this state was the birthplace of America’s spacecraft such as the X-Planes, the Apollo Command Module, the Space Shuttle, the Hubble Telescope, Spaceship One, the Space X Falcon Rocket and the robotic rovers that are currently roaming Mars.

“The Space Station” is a privately funded space exploration museum.  It is a non-profit corportation that is run by a staff of passionate volunteers.  The Space Station Museum houses one of the largest private collections of U.S., Russian and Soviet space exploration artifacts. The organization has attracted legendary figures such as Apollo 12 Astronaut Dick Gordon, Apollo 15 Astronaut Al Worden, award-winning actor Bill Pullman and video game designer Will Wright to its Board of Advisors.
