Are you seeking a pilot for your personal or corporate aircraft?
Are you looking for a mentor pilot, or a right-seat pilot/CFI to back you up?
Do you have an aircraft that needs to be flown across the state, or across the country?
I have experience in piston, turboprop, and jet aircraft and can accommodate your professional pilot needs.
If you are just starting out I can help you earn your private pilot's license.
Not only do I provide the necessary instruction,
but I will help you navigate through the entire process to help assure that
you make it through.
My students have a 100% pass rate on their checkride.
If you are already a licensed pilot I can help you move to the next level by earning
your commercial pilot's license or instrument rating,
or your high power or complex endorsements.
Or maybe you're in need of a Flight Review or IPC, or you're just getting back into flying
after some years off
and need to get back to being current and safe.
Ground School / Ground Instruction
Ground instruction is an often overlooked but critical part of a pilot's training.
A good pilot must learn and understand a wide variety of information, and they must maintain
and update that information as time goes on. It takes a lot of work.
Ground school is a great way for the initial (or returning) pilot to learn - in a group setting - the fundamentals
needed to obtain their pilot's license. It is economical, and the friends
made in ground school often support each other through the entire ground and flight training experience.
Are you having difficulty in a particular knowledge area?
Don't have time for ground school?
Do you have an upcoming written or oral exam and you feel that you could be better prepared?
Personalized ground instruction can be tailored to meet your specific scheduling or content needs.
