Developing a love of airplanes was a natural progression for Daniel Wagner. Now, 31, he grew up in a home where his dad flew 767s and his mom was a flight attendant, both for a major airline.
After receiving his bachelor’s degree at Sam Houston State University and working in marketing, he became a flight attendant for United Airlines. He quickly realized that flying airplanes and ensuring the comfort of his passengers was in his blood. After completing his flight training, Daniel had the opportunity to work for Mokulele Airlines, transporting passengers in the Cessna Caravan from island to beautiful island in Hawaii for the next 18 months.
When not flying, Daniel loves to mentor young minorities to achieve their aviation dreams for OBAP (Organization of Black Aerospace Professionals). His contagious love of aviation has fueled him to encourage many friends, family members, and even acquaintances to follow the path of aviation.
Daniel’s Cessna Caravan experience, love of animals, and his passion for helping others led him to find Dog Is My CoPilot. He looks forward to being part of the team and transporting these animals so they can ultimately find their forever homes.
