Adam van den Broek was born and raised in sunny Merritt Island, Florida. At the age of 16, he founded his own music entertainment company and since 2008 has made his living performing in the music industry. Using the earnings from his business, he earned a BA in Business Administrations from UCF. Although he had never considered becoming a pilot, he walked in to a local FBO on a whim and took a discovery flight. It was love at first flight! Over the next couple of years, he earned his commercial single/multi, CFI, CFII, and MEI certificates.
