Why are you a Certified Flight Instructor?
love flying in every way, shape and form. The ability to pass on that
love of flying is something extremely rewarding. Opening up new doors
and passing on new and complex knowledge is fun, putting a smile on my
face to see someone progressing from nothing to a professional pilot.
Safety is extremely important; from the initial Private Pilot, to
teaching people how to fly High-Performance and Complex airplanes,
safety is always at the top of my list.
How long have you been instructing?
Since December 2013.
Do you tend to favor PAO or SQL, and how might it affect a student's ability to schedule time?
Either airport works for me, just check-in with me and let me know when and where you're scheduling me!
How would you describe your availability in general?
Always open unless otherwise shown by my schedule. Available days, nights and weekends.
What method of ground school do you prefer and how does it relate to your syllabus?
method works best for the student. Whether is be by book, classroom,
computer, DVD or face-to-face instruction, I will do anything
to complement your ground school choice in the air.
What is your favorite aircraft to instruct in?
Cessna 182! It's a beautiful high-performance airplane that flies
around like it is on rails. It's great for teaching the next step up
from the initial Private Pilot, and teaches responsibility in a complex
and high-performance airplane. It has great ergonomics, is comfortable,
and is perfect for long cross-country flights.
What are your aircraft recommendations for a new student?
Any plane that they are comfortable in! Either Cessna or Piper is perfect for initial training.
What percentage of your students pass their checkride on the first try?
Aviation is my
biggest passion of my life, and I have always looked to the sky. I have
done all my flight training at West Valley Flying Club and am excited
about teaching at the club! Give me a call and we can set up a time to
meet and discuss your goals for becoming a pilot.
