Flying Professionally – Taking It Personally

I am an aviator – through and through. I have been flying for over thirty years and am more passionate about sharing the exhilaration that comes from being at the controls than ever before. I am not only a pilot – I am a flight instructor.

With more than 9,000 hours of flying time, the thrill for me is what I see on the faces of those I instruct. The science of flying changes every day – and I stay on the leading edge of aircraft design, in-flight and ground communication systems, and all the regulatory, governmental, and safety details most take for granted. There is never a dull moment in this business – and it’s my job to keep it this way.

I would like more people to take advantage of my familiarity with more than 125 different makes and models of planes, running the gamut from ultra-lights to large commercial jets – and all the planes on floats, wheel, and snow skis in between.

I train private pilots and seasoned veterans for domestic and international airlines, governments, corporations, and charter companies. I also train other flight instructors in classrooms, in the sky, and in highly sophisticated simulators. I am comfortable in the audience and while presenting at industry conferences. If you’d like to know how you can get ahead in the world of flying – just ask.
