Michael Linhart was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. After graduating from MIAT in Ann Arbor, Michigan with his A&P in 2010 he moved to California to avoid doing maintenance in the snow. He has since received his IA (Inspection Authorization) Certificate and has logged thousands of hours working on every type of aircraft that enables him to help manage the growing Silver Air fleet. His love of aviation has spread into the inception of a nonprofit, A Different Point of View, that provides young adults with access and opportunities within the aviation industry, for which he serves as a mentor and Board President.
