Hayden Young

Air Traffic Manager

Born in Lexington, KY, I have lived and worked in the skies of ZID my whole life. I joined vZID in 2011 and, excluding a few short gaps, have called it my home since. Here I’ve met many of my best friends in life. I have held Training Administrator appointments here as well as vZTL and enjoy using my experience in flying, ATC, and education to lead a highly successful department. I now live just outside Washington D.C. where I work at a major airline supporting our pilots.

David Glaser

Facilities Engineer

I have been interested in aviation since the 1970’s, getting my private pilot license while studying computer science at Bowling Green State University (Ohio). I eventually earned my flight instructor certificate with instrument endorsement, but my career focused on computer support utilizing many roles. Now retired, my other interests include golf, hiking, and visiting our many great National Parks. I returned to flight sims with the advent of virtual reality. With my desire to have full immersion in the cockpit, I joined VATSIM in 2020.
