Additional Comments:

I started life as a biochemistry researcher and on a whim took a flight lesson at a small flying club called Alameda Aero Club, at Oakland Airport.  Little did I know that after that my life would change.  It turns out my primary instructor was no other than Ben Freelove, now a world class aerobatic competition pilot. Through his guidance and wisdom I developed a passion for flying, particularly aerobatic flight.  Now, 10 years later I own a Pitts S2C, I’m competing in aerobatic competitions, and teaching others the joy and exhilaration of flight.  I am available most weekdays and weekends (I will sometimes take either a Saturday or Sunday off) to help you reach your goals, whether it’s your first take off, perfecting instrument flying in a glass cockpit environment, or rolling a plane upside down. I’m qualified to teach a range of skills in a variety of aircraft. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, I’d be happy to chat in more detail about how to launch your flight path.
