Meet Dr. Davenport
In the military I am a retired USAF Command F-16 Instructor Pilot and former Director of Operations for the Texas Air National Guard as a Traditional (part-time) Guardsman. I've trained the world's best combat F-16 pilots and maintained proficiency flying at least 5 sorties each month while adhering to the most stringent standards of professional aviation.
I've been involved with General Aviation my whole life and have had a private pilot's license for over 20 years. I have an FAA commercial, multi-engine land rating and am a Certificated Flight Instructor - Instrument (CFII).
I've been working full-time in the field of civilian medicine since receiving my M.D. from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) Galveston in 1999. I am residency trained in both Internal Medicine and Aerospace Medicine. I received world-class Aerospace Medical training with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) at the Johnson Space Center and was supportive of both Shuttle and Soyuz launches. I have a Master's degree in Public Health from UTMB. In addition to being a military fighter pilot, I'm also a U.S. Air Force rated flight surgeon since 2004.
FAA-Designated Senior Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) and HIMS AME:
Many of my military colleagues and friends are commercial airline pilots. They have for years been prompting me to seek designation as an AME because they know and trust me and my skills. My enthusiasm for the combination of aviation and medicine makes this an ideal opportunity. I know first hand what it is to be a pilot going for a medical exam. My intention is to devote my full-time work to being the premier AME in whom you can place your complete confidence.
