Allan Wendt is an Atlanta based television engineer and pilot.
Allan's aviation story began in the same way as thousands of others. As a kid, he and his dad went to the local airport just to watch planes take off and land. On a good day he might get a ride with one of the local pilots. He soloed and became a private pilot while he was in high school. He continued to learn and became a Private Pilot, Certified Flight Instructor, Instrument Instructor, Advanced Ground Instructor, and Multi-Engine Airline Transport Pilot. Allan has thousands of hours instructing, flying charters and flying the 50 passenger Bombardier CRJ (Canadian Regional Jet for Midway Airlines).
In television, he has spent many years traveling with Television Remote Trucks and Satellite Uplink Trucks. He has been a staff engineer for Scripps Networks (HGTV, The Food Network, DIY & GAC) and for Turner Broadcasting Systems. Recently Allan's interests have turned to UAV operations. A natural transition for the seasoned vet. Allan has passed his Part 107 test and is FAA compliant. Allan is currently flying a DJI Matrice 600 with Ronin MX gimbal and a GH4/Canon5DMiii as well as an Inspire 1 Pro.
