Director of Operations
Caroline is a Florida native, born and raised in Hernando County. Living across from the Brooksville Airport, Caroline spent part of her life on the other side of the gates watching the helicopters and planes take off. While certainly not the first in her family to have dreams of one day becoming a pilot, Caroline is part of the first generation in her family to work on becoming a pilot. As one of Sentinel Service’s student pilots, Caroline can certainly relate to the students as she too works towards her Private Pilot’s License. Caroline holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Management and has many years of experience leading a team. It is her passion to watch students succeed and progress with their life’s goals while fully cheering them on along the way.
Assistant Chief Flight Instructor
For Mark, aviation became part of his life as a kid. Taking “Intro flights” on birthdays, those 30 minutes of flying were never long enough it seemed. As a veteran of the U.S. Navy, Mark used his love of aviation to work on the F/A-18C Hornets and serve his country. After moving to Florida in 2016, he has been at the Brooksville airport connecting with like-minded aviators and learning everything he can. In 2017 he achieved his CFI and began instructing students. While doing that, he gained an opportunity to fly Learjets around the world as an air ambulance Captain reaching over 40 countries in just 2 and a half years. Now, he joins Sentinel Flight School as our Assistant Chief Flight Instructor bringing his experience and passion for aviation to the community of Hernando County.

Site Fuel Manager & Aircraft Parts Manager
Austin first found his love for flight while taking the ride of his life in an Astra. Shortly after the flight he set his goals to pursue a career in aviation, joining Sentinel Services and becoming one of Sentinel Service’s student pilots. Austin has such a passion and romance for flight and loves to share his reasons for falling in love with it. Simply being up in the sky and having any worries of the real world washed away at the push of the throttle motivates him.
