About the hosts

Dan Millican

Owner of a film/tv/video production company Serendipitous Films located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. When the drone craze hit the industry, Dan took advantage of the FAA’s 333 Exemption rule on commercial aerial work by getting his private pilot certificate and was hooked on aviation ever since. He has climbed the rating ladder and now holds his Certified Flight Instructor ticket. He purchased a Cessna 210 and uses it to carry crew and equipment to shoots all over the United States. In 2018, he created the YouTube channel “TakingOff” and like its name, it certainly has! The channel has experienced phenomenal growth and provides content that leaves the viewer a better person and pilot for watching.


Christy Wong

Christy Wong realized her lifelong dream of becoming an airline pilot at the age of 37. She is also a CFI/CFII/MEI and often does discovery flights to expose others to aviation. In addition to flying for the airlines and co-hosting “Taking Off”, Christy is also the president of her flying club. She also loves spending time with her family and friends and (surprise) going flying in her Piper Chorkee Wong Warrior when she can.
