It was at that ripe age of five years old that Daniel decided to become a pilot. Daniel Croom was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and graduated from Newton High school as a 4-year Varsity baseball player. His hard work and determination eventually earned him an athletic scholarship at Tuskegee University. Daniel graduated with a Sales and Marketing degree in 2018.
Being a student-athlete taught him all about discipline and persistence, qualities that applied not only to all areas of academia but also toward his first love: becoming a pilot.
Shortly after graduating college, Daniel joined the scholarship and managed to earn his Private Pilot’s License, Instrument Rating, Commercial Rating, CFI, and CFI-I rating in the span of one year. In 2019, he began instructing at Auburn University’s Part 141 flight school for 10 months. Daniel is currently a commercial airline pilot working for CommutAir.
