Inside Skylink With Colin Wilcox


Wilcox 3

Where are you from?

The humble suburbs of Northwest Chicago

What brought you to Skylink?

Aviation is in my blood. With both parents being pilots and first hand experience with an experimental aircraft build/flight, Skylink catered to my love of aviation.

What do you love about aviation?

The ability for man to break the laws of nature and push the boundaries of physics and speed.

Who is your hero? Why?

My father is my hero. He was a pilot for United Airlines for 20 years and for Eastern Air Line before that. We built a Vans Aircraft RV-4 in our basement thanks to his wild obsession. He put his heart and soul into the aerospace industry and it gave him back everything he could ever want and more!

What is your favorite book?

My favorite book is Blink by Malcolm Gladwell . I enjoy trying to understand one's perception of reality and how they process their decisions.

What inspires you?Wilcox 2

Nature. I love taking a moment to appreciate the world we live in.

What’s your favorite drink currently in your fridge?

Nothing like some southern sweet tea.

What’s a tool or trick you use to make life easier?

"Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive." Sure its a quote from a movie, but its had more of an affect on my life then most conversations I've had.

If you were a superhero, what would be your name and superpower?

SuperDude, and the ability to move objects with my mind.
