Labeled as one of the “nicest” guys at Airways Freight, David Sarratt began his career in our Domestic Operations department in June of 2006. Having heard about Airways while working at Taylor Displays as a freight manager, David used to take care of Airways Freight’s large custom trade show booth used for exhibiting. After being referred by another Airways employee, David applied for a position and has been moving freight ever since. One of the things he likes most about working at Airways Freight, is handling shipments from start to finish. Whether it is emailing requests for quotes, entering, dispatching, and tracking freight, David thrives on the intricate details involved.
David was born in Richmond, California, and at the age of 5 he and his family moved “back home” to Arkansas where his Mother had grown up. He has lived in the Northwest Arkansas area ever since. Growing up the baby of the family, as well as being the only boy, David spent a lot of time with his Dad. They did everything together, from hunting, fishing gardening to fixing vehicles and building things. His Father taught him to play catch as well as cribbage and ping pong. During the summer, David would ride along with him on his route for a local vending machine company. He would help, and his Dad gave him as many honey buns a kid could eat as payment!
David and his wife Andrea have been married since 2010. They have four boys, Cody – 17, Noah – 5, Case – 3, and are proud to announce the birth of their fourth son Nyls on August 17th of this year, weighing in at 8 pounds and 10 ounces!
Outside of work, David, and his family like to travel over to Cassville, Missouri to spend time on Mamaw and Papaw’s farm! They also enjoy going to Silver Dollar City on occasion. David also likes to play Baggo and is extremely competitive.
Something you may not know about David is that he used to sing solos with his church choir. David’s most notable accomplishment to this point is going back to school and receiving his BSBIS degree!
He is quiet, productive, supportive, and hardworking. He is beneficial to Domestic Operations, and we are happy to have him on our team.
Airways would like to offer our Congratulations to David and Andrea on the birth of their son Nyls!
