Mark Palm shows that through dedication and persistence your dreams can be possible. At 19 years-old, Palm visited the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea and immediately noticed the medical needs of the community. The area was so remote that he realized there was a need for easier access to address medical emergencies. Palm’s proposed solution was a float-plane. Palm earned his commercial pilot certification, an instrument and float-plane rating, and an FAA aircraft mechanic certification.
