“Dr. Don’s” passion for aviation is evident. He is a Commercial Multi-Engine aircraft and Helicopter Pilot. His dessire at the age of 7 years old was to become a pilot, that desire never died. At the age of 47, (forty years later), and inspired by The Tuskegee Airmen of WWII, he finally decided to fulfill his dreams of flying aircraft and obtained several pilot licenses, including Helicopter, Commercial Airplane, Jet Transition Training, Multi-Engine and Instrument Ratings. He now travels and speaks to audiences of young and old telling them why their dreams are never too big and that they are never too young or too old to obtain their childhood dreams through his “Future Aviators” youth aviaton program and “THINK BIG!” School Assemblies”.   Dr. Shorter often uses his professional piloting skills to fly as Pilot In Command as a corporate pilot to his many speaking engagements, he also uses his helicopter skills to bring applied science to his student audiences as he lands his helicopter on their campus grounds to speak to students, and to motivate them to (THINK BIG!), by excelling in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) learning areas, to reach their future dreams and goals in life in a changing technological society.

Don Shorter is affectionately known as “the family man”. He and his wife of over 40 years Kathy, enjoy sharing their lives with their three grown children and four grandcohildren.
