Why are you a Certified Flight Instructor?

Flying and coaching you to your goals is my calling. I love this as much as you do! Flying is simply part of who I am. 

How long have you been instructing?
Over 12 years, since 2004. 

Do you tend to favor PAO or SQL, and how might it affect a student's ability to schedule time?
SQL, but I love PAO also.

How would you describe your availability in general?
Monday through Friday.

What method of ground school do you prefer and how does it relate to your syllabus?
Computer based training programs are outstanding because you can do the academic work on your own schedule and you can re-use the content over and over at no extra expense to your wallet. 

What is your favorite aircraft to instruct in?
Cessnas and Diamond Stars

What are your aircraft recommendations for a new student?
C-172. Mechanical instruments or glass instruments; your choice. 

What percentage of your students pass their checkride on the first try?
100%. I will only endorse you for your ride when I know that you're ready.
