Why are you a Certified Flight Instructor?

Flying is a serious hobby of mine and I enjoy teaching others to fly. I am not teaching to build time or to make an income.

How long have you been instructing?
Since 2009.

Do you tend to favor PAO or SQL, and how might it affect a student's ability to schedule time?
Either Airport is fine with me.

How would you describe your availability in general?
I teach only part-time and prefer students contact me by email to schedule lessons.

What method of ground school do you prefer and how does it relate to your syllabus?
It is completely dependent on the student. Some students do well studying at home on their own and that is fine with me. I am currently offering an instrument ground school at WVFC and some students might like to take that route.

What is your favorite aircraft to instruct in?
My current favorite for teaching IFR is anything with a G1000.

What are your aircraft recommendations for a new student?
None, although I have a soft spot for taildraggers. I have yet to meet an aircraft I didn't like.

What percentage of your students pass their checkride on the first try?
100% as of now.

Additional Comments:
I don't take any primary students, only instrument students.
