California State Liaison, Chris Berge
California State Liaison
Chris Berge was raised in Santa Cruz, CA, for 13 years until his family moved to the San Francisco bay area, where he has resided ever since. Currently, he and his partner, Ruth Bley, own an electrical construction company performing work on bridges, tunnels and other infrastructure projects. Chris is the father of two daughters who are currently in school.
Always wanting to fly, he was finally able to pursue flying in 2001. After approximately 200 hours, he attended a mountain canyon flying course in McCall, ID. Since then, it has been Cessna 180 flying in Idaho and Utah. Chris' goal is to preserve and try to expand the back country experience so others may enjoy it as well.
