Anthony-Paul Zerafa

Anthony began flight training a week after graduating from High School in New York. He moved half-way across the country and started earning his degree in Aviation at the University of North Dakota. He worked as Flight Instructor at UND until graduating in 2011. Anthony hit the job market at an all-time low. He found his first job in Vegas flying a Cirrus Aircraft for high-end clients in 2012. The hours spent in the air eventually landed him in the right seat of Embraer 175 at Compass Airlines. His passion for union work began as a scheduling coordinator. He was elected as MEC Chairman in 2016 and went on to help thousands of pilots. In April 2016, he was hired at FedEx and now flies the Boeing 777 based in Memphis. Anthony met Katrina Mittelstadt while working at Compass Airlines and threw himself into the craziness. Anthony now comes back each year to help mentor, teach and run errands for Katrina all week. Anthony has been an Assistant Director and senior mentor for three years. He lives in Saint Paul with his adorable girlfriend, Lindsay Davis.
