Hello there and thanks for stopping by Thirty Thousand, my Commercial Aviation and Travel blog. My goal is to keep you up to date with the latest happenings in the ever-changing aviation industry and to share my worldwide travel experiences. Whether you are looking for pointers on good places to take pictures at a specific airport, details on new airline services, or what to do on your holiday in Germany, you are sure to find it here. Since starting Thirty Thousand in 2011 I have had over 100,000 page views, an article featured in Airways Magazine and my photos broadcast on CNN.

I have been obsessed with the world of aviation for as long as I can remember and have been lucky enough to make a career out of it. I am currently finishing up a degree in Aviation Management and Supply Chain Management at Auburn University in Alabama and will be starting my career with a major airline in July.  I have been a Private Pilot since the age of 17 and am currently finishing up my Instrument Rating. I spent 2 years Co-oping with one of the largest airlines in the world which allowed me to travel the world. So far I have visited every corner of the world including Dubai, Singapore, Chile, South Africa, Germany, Saint Maarten and dozens of other countries & territories.

Feel free to contact me any time. I’d love to hear from you. Don’t forget to follow Thirty Thousand via Email, Twitter, or Facebook to be updated on new posts.

    Hi Kyle,
    Just finished reading your “State with no commercial air service” article, very interesting!
    I am the Editor of a semi-annual newsletter for Delta Virtual Airlines (using Microsoft’s Flight Simulator), and I would like to have your permission to use the article in our upcoming September Edition.
    I will certainly give you credit for the article.

    Thanks for your consideration,
    Tom Housworth
    Delta FLY! Editor
