Chuck Denison, PhD
Aviation and Forensic Psychologist
I am a psychologist, aircraft owner and avid pilot. I graduated from the University of Denver with two grauate degrees in psychology in 1990 and 1994. My specialty practices are aviation psychology and forensic psychology. My offices are in Broomfield, Colorado (Rocky Mountain Metro Airport) and Laramie, Wyoming. I reside in Laramie and commute between locations in my Aviat Husky A-1B bush plane. I maintain my ongoing education in aviation psychology and neuropsychological testing through the HIMS program and the annual aeromedical psychology conference. I provide the CogScreen-Aeromedical Edition test to pilots who seek renewals of their Special Issuance, and work with my associate Dr Kendra Sherwood in administering a variety of FAA and military referred evaluations. I provide forensic consultation to attorneys working on aviation-related legal cases.
My aviation activities are focused on "bush flying" and backcountry operations. I am a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the National Business Aviation Association, the Experimental Aviation Association, the Recreational Aviation Foundation, and four other state pilots' associations in the western US. I am a certified to provide introductory Young Eagles flights through EAA, and serve as President of the Laramie Flying Club.
