Proud of Where We’ve Been
Our aviation roots go deeper than the name Hatt & Associates. They date to President Brad Hatt’s father, a Korean War fighter pilot named Willis Faux. As chief pilot of the Des Moines Flying Service, Faux flew dignitaries such as President Truman while Brad started washing planes, changing oil and learning the ropes. Of course, he took to the air himself, soloing in a Piper Tomahawk at 16.
