Rank/Name: 1st Lt. Logan Sisca

Unit: 89th Airlift Squadron

Duty Title: C-17 Pilot

Hometown: Huber Heights, Ohio

Civilian Job: Currently flying full-time with the 89th, formerly a SpaceX avionics engineer

Education: Bachelor of Science in Engineering - Electrical Engineering, Arizona State University

Hobbies: Building experimental kit planes, golfing, home renovation, playing with my pups

Career Goal: I would like to merge my engineering and flying experience to become a test pilot and later fly in the commercial space industry.

What do you like about working at the 445th?: I enjoy collaborating with amazing friends from across the Wing to safely execute the mission. Everyone takes pride in excelling at their job to ensure that we can fly around the world while facing challenging operational demands. Also, leadership supports your personal and career goals by helping you find opportunities to continue to grow, in both the military and civilian world.

Why did you join the Air Force?: I wished to use my lifelong passion for aviation to give back to the global community through the various humanitarian missions the 445th accomplishes. My second mission with the unit was Operation Allies Refuge, during which my crew had the privilege of flying 1,167 Afghan evacuees, including a baby born on our jet. Those sorties exemplified why it is so fulfilling to serve in the Air Force Reserve—whether its evacuee transport, disaster relief, or aeromedical evacuation, the C-17 community is ready to help when the world needs it.
