Hi there, my name is John Braddock and I am currently a pilot for Emirates Airlines flying the Airbus A380. Flying is my passion and am lucky to being the job I once dreamed about as a kid. I grew up in Indiana in the United States and attended Purdue University where I majored in flight technology. After college, my first airline job was with Chautauqua Airlines flying Embraer 145s as a first officer and then the Embraer 170 as a captain. In 2008, I accepted a job flying the Airbus 330/340 with Emirates before moving over to the A380 in 2013.
In addition to working as an airline pilot, I own a Pitts S2C aerobatic airplane and am partners in a company called Grayout Aerosports based in Indianapolis, Indiana where we teach people aerobatics and upset recovery flying. I also own Braddock Aerial Services International (BASI) which is an aerial support business providing my Piper Seneca 2 aircraft for aerial survey missions throughout the Middle East in addition to supporting the media community in anything aviation related. Flying is my absolute passion and I love every minute of it. It is with great pride that I am able to be an ambassador for Captain Judy and representing the United Arab Emirates were I currently live!!!
