Austi Tarter-Leclercq


Small business owner, Marine veteran, mother of three & pilot. Raised in Atlanta, Georgia with her mother since she was 5 years old, Austi joined the Marine Corps at 18 years old in hopes of a new opportunity. Having completed her Masters degree with the help of the military she decided to try out her newly acquired business skills in the corporate world. However, after many years of trying to find her place she discovered that working for someone else’s passion is a lot harder than it looks! Austi then decided to go into business for herself and leave the cubicle job for good! With a small introduction of 5 years to aviation in the military, she had been looking for ways to get that same joy and be able to support her family. Austi soon discovered a passion for flying helicopters and that mixed with her pursuit of business was exactly what she had been looking for! With her father being a helicopter pilot and a successful business owner, it was a no-brainer that she could have the best mentor for her new adventure! MaxFlight helicopter Services opened June of 2013 with one R-22 and continues to grow steady with multiple helicopters and various flight services.
