Mauricio Lopez

Bio: Born and raised in El Paso, TX. Currently 28 years old and has held several different jobs before coming to work at Red Arrow. He has been an employee at Red Arrow almost since it was started, and I look forward to watching the company grow and meeting new people with interesting backgrounds. I have a Labrador dog named Yadi who is a handful at home. Hobbies include going to the gym, playing basketball, watching baseball.

Laura Ditlevson

Bio: Laura was born and raised in El Paso. As a junior in high school, her love for aviation surfaced and she began working at Red Arrow part time. Soon afterwards, the local EAA chapter announced that she was one of the recipients for a scholarship to learn how to fly. She is currently pursuing her initial private pilot license and plans to continue through all of the programs. Once a certified flight instructor, (CFI) Laura plans to work full time at Red Arrow and share her love for flying with others.
