For as long as he can remember, Richard Mbaka grew up wanting to be a pilot. His passion for all things aviation led him to pursue flight training, initially in his birthplace of Nairobi, Kenya; and later in Australia and the United States where he also studied Political Science at the University of Central Oklahoma. Richard also holds a Remote Pilot certificate for Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) and enjoys flying commercial and recreational missions with his drone. His passion for teaching led him to Parks College, where he aims to continue inspiring the next generation of aviators.
