About the pilot

Hello, I'm Chase Sellmeyer, an entrepreneur and marketing expert turned professional pilot with a passion for adventure.

Throughout my aviation journey, the need for preparedness became evident. Flight Buddies was born out of this necessity, starting as a Frankenstein mix of homemade checklists, procedures, and flight rules. As other student pilots inquired about my DIY kits, I saw an opportunity to create a more systematic and functional design.

Flight Buddies was born. The goal is to offer a convenient solution, ensuring easy access and simplicity to commonly overlooked procedures and tasks for newer pilots.

Flight Buddies is more than just a product; it's a commitment to making aviation information accessible, easy to understand, and readily available. Join me on this journey, where my passion for flying meets the art of preparation!
