About Us

Jeff and Jennifer Lively, Owners of Lively Aviation

Jeff and Jennifer Lively created Lively Aviation to help develop pilots become more knowledgeable with the regulations. During flight training, Jeff wanted to make learning the FAR/AIM easier but also wanted to help other pilots learn the regulations. Thus, the tabbed FAR/AIM came to be. The Lively’s have a deep love for aviation, as it runs in Jeff’s blood and Jennifer fell in love with it as well ever since they began dating over 10 years ago. Jeff and Jennifer run the day to day operations at Lively Aviation.

“We are extremely blessed and grateful for what God has brought into our life. Whether it be from our team members to helping the aviation community, Jennifer and I are excited for what the future holds and we look forward to helping thousands of more individuals on their own personal aviation journeys! Blue skies and safe flying my friends!” -Jeff Lively Jr.

She’s loved airplanes and aviation ever since. Noelle recently achieved her CFI-I rating and is now instructing at Universal Flight Concepts in Waco, TX. She hopes to eventually become an international airline pilot.

Scott Harton, Private Pilot ASEL

Scott is from Longmont, Colorado, and is currently a Private Pilot.

Scott has the desire to serve his country because of his patriotism and looks forward to flying for the Air Force. The one thing he likes most working for Lively Aviation is the people he is surrounded with, as well as the dogs who are there for encouragement and stress relief. Outside of Baylor University and his studies, he enjoys playing the piano and throwing a frisbee with friends.

Aaron Lynch, Commercial License AMEL/Instrument Rating, CFI-I

Aaron is from Tomball, Texas and is currently a commercial, multi-rated pilot with instrument privileges. Growing up he lived by KDWH, his mom was also a flight attendant, so he was constantly around aviation! Ever since his young age he grew closer to it and hasn’t looked back. His long term goal is to fly for a major airline carrier. One of his favorite things about working at Lively Aviation is being able to apply a passion for aviation that gives back. Knowing that he is making a product that will help someone grow their aviation career is extremely rewarding! During Aaron’s off time, you’ll find him hanging out around his fraternity friends working out or watching any sports game!
