David J Silchman, Founder & CEO

David holds Private Pilot, Instrument Rating, Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic,  Advanced Ground Instructor, Instrument Ground Instructor, and sUAS (Commercial Drone) Certificates.

Founded the Nebraska Flight Center in 2003 out of the North Omaha Airport, soon moved to the Blair Municipal Airport where operations were conducted from a “portable office” since no other buildings were available. At the end of 2007 the NFC had to interrupt activities, and re-started by early 2014, this time from the TAC Air facilities at Eppley Airfield.

David dreamed of flying since he was a little boy and finally in the 1990s got his wish and enrolled in the Cochise Community College flight school in southeastern Arizona, where he earned his Private Pilot’s Certificate. After moving to Omaha, David passed the IFR checkride after expert instruction from Jenn McIntyre at the then Omaha Flight Center, here at Eppley. The next step was to earn Airframe and Powerplant Mechanic Certificates after two years at Iowa Western Community College.
