About

In 1988 at the age of 15 I started flying. As a Civil Air Patrol cadet I was chosen to attend a solo school.  I soloed at the age of 16.  Due to a limited flying budget it took me a couple more years to get my Private Pilot Certificate.  In 1994 after 18 months in A&P school I earned my Airframe & Power Plant Certificates.  In the next couple of years I also obtained my Instrument Rating,  Commercial Pilot Certificate and Flight Instructor with Instrument Privileges. In 1997 I graduated from Moody Aviation with a B.S. in Missionary Aviation Technology which was a sort of a bush pilot academy.   In that same year I began flying professionally, and  I also began flight instructing.  Since that time I have been actively flight instructing.  During this time the company I was flying a Turbo Centurion (C-210) decided to purchase a Piper Malibu Mirage.  Over the next few year I logged a number of hours in the PA46 series.  Throughout my corporate flying career I was fortunate to be able to stay active in flight instructing.   It was during this period that I was able to instruct a number of people in a the Beechcraft Baron to obtain their Multi-Engine Rating. In 2002 I accepted a position flying flying a Beechcraft King Air 200.  After spending several years in that position and logging over 1,000 hours in the KA200.  My next flying opportunity was a job flying and maintaining a Cessna 421C Golden Eagle.  In 2009 I went into full time flight instruction.  After several months of working with insurance underwriters and getting my flight training programs approved by various insurance underwriters.

Currently I have received approvals from insurance underwriters to provide training the in the following aircraft.
