Racer Bio:

My name is Andrew Patry and I am married to Katherine and have two children, Sarah (11), Joseph (5). After graduating from Central Washington University with a degree in Business Administration in 2006, I owned and operated a franchise small business for 11 years. In December 2017 I pivoted to my side business of operating a small real estate company. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, flying, and visiting new places.

Fortunate to grow up in a flying family. Summers were spent traveling with my parents and siblings in the family Twin Comanche. Weekends were spent receiving flight instruction from my father sitting on a several pillows to reach the rudder pedal in his straight tail Cessna 150. After searching 6 months for a vintage 182, I found the Bumble Bee in Carlin, NV July 2020. With the help of my father (IA) it was brought home.

A well loved dry climate kept airplane is equipped with the Sportsman STOL cuff, VGs, Selkirk extended baggage, McFarlane Middlefork Tail Skid, 2 blade MT composite propeller, double puck brakes, stock O-470L, vacuum delete, Titanium gear legs, sport aircraft seats, and 8.50×6 main tires.
