Why are you a Certified Flight Instructor?

4 Years Now.

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

How would you describe your availability in general?

Joining one of our ground school classes is a cheap and effective means of learning the material and making friends in the world of flying.

What is your favorite aircraft to instruct in?
Extra 300L, Now that it is gone, Pitts S2C
