Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot , Certified Flight Instructor – Airplane, Instrument, Multiengine
THE ADVENTURE OF FLIGHT
You do not need to be a thrill seeker or daredevil to want to fly. I do it simply for the escape and its beauty. Flying is great for travel but I will show you its magnificence. My many years as a High School Physics teacher and instructor allows me to create your personalized lesson plans. The safest pilots were taught by instructors that make the experience fun!
MY LIFE IN AVIATION
I loved aviation as a young kid and could not wait for my first flying lesson in the spring of 1980. Many years and thousands of hours later, I have instructed many enthusiastic new pilots during most of that time. I have flown over almost every state in this great country and made nearly 10,000 landings! Over the years I had the opportunity to fly air charter, own an airplane, and currently be part of the Cirrus standardized instructor program (CSIP). Being a high school teacher also has allowed me to teach elective classes, run clubs, and help out youth groups related to aviation. Activities like model building, PC flight simulation, RC flying, and airshows make a hobby become a career for young and old.
