Bob’s Passion for Aviation:

“My love of aviation is grounded in my passion for Liberty. In my mind, few things represent the essence of liberty better than our freedom to fly. I have always made it my mission to help as many people as possible realize their dream of flight. Whether it is for personal enjoyment, the furtherance of business or just convenience of travel, aviation is the embodiment of our natural right to be free.”


Alex’s favorite part of his job = “The best part of my job is working with my clients to loan approval. At Dorr, we deal with many first-time buyers, and new pilots that are just starting out. For me, the satisfaction in the voice of a newly approved applicant, knowing that I am helping to advance their dreams of flight, makes the job well worth it. Also, as a student pilot myself, talking to experienced aviators furthers my passion for the industry. “

What Tara likes best about her job = “It’s very special to be a small part of our client’s plane-buying experience. This airplane purchase could’ve been their dream since they were small and went to their first air show. It’s so rewarding to hear the excitement in their voice when you tell them the loan has gone through and the airplane is all theirs!”
