Shown is a private jet flown by Joseph Morales parked at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. 

Appomattox resident Joseph Morales was born in Richmond but feels like he was born to fly. 

Morales, a 2013 graduate of Liberty University’s School of Aeronautics, works as an Delta Air Lines pilot in their private jet division. 

The planes Morales flies are smaller than commercial jets, generally seating seven to 10 passengers. The caveat is those passengers have more leg room and comfort than on a typical commercial flight.
