Patrick Schroeder was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Ever since he was a child, Patrick dreamed of becoming an airline pilot. During his senior year of high school, just before the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Patrick began his private pilot training out of his local flight school in Atlanta. Upon graduation from high school, Patrick then decided to move to the Daytona Beach area to further pursue his dream of becoming a professional pilot. He was successfully able to complete his Instrument, Commercial (single and multi-engine), and flight instructor ratings during his time at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Patrick enjoys seeking new experiences, which is what drove him to obtain his high-performance, complex, and tailwheel endorsements. When he is not flying, Patrick enjoys traveling, and spending his free time at popular theme parks in Orlando, but also loves the company of his dog, Bruno.
