Meet John Evans, Ag Support Specialist
We have pilots in every aspect of our business. Let us introduce you to one now!
John Evans has been with us since 2015, supporting Intelligent Ag Solutions, our joint venture with AGCO Corporation. Intelligent Ag develops technologies to help farmers make the most of their equipment. Smarter farming doesn’t have to be complicated, and Intelligent Ag is dedicated to producing innovative products that make it simple to maximize profit margin.
What motivated you to pursue your pilot’s license and how long have you been flying?
The movie Top Gun and my parents. I’ve always had an interest in airplanes/aviation, and getting my pilot’s license was something I wanted to do. I had intended on becoming a professional pilot (I attended the flight school at UND), and even though I really enjoy flying, the lifestyle of a career pilot was not for me. I have not flown much in the last few years but I do intend on getting back into flying soon.
What was your proudest moment as a pilot?
Obtaining my Flight Instructor Certificate (CFI).
