Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: I knew what I wanted to do since I was 8 when I took my first flight on Eastern Air Lines. I still am very passionate about teaching and aviation safety.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: 24 years

What's your favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: Teaching people to fly is such an honor. I enjoy seeing students progress through their ratings and end up at the airlines. My favorite thing was seeing the first student I ever taught flying an Airbus.

What's your least favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: I don't have too many things I don't like. One thing I don't like nor tolerate is unsafe operations. I rather cancel a flight then explain later why metal is bent. General aviation has a lot of personalities. I like to keep things safety focused at all times.

Why did you join SAFE?: I joined to get information and keep up to date on flight training. Since I fly for the airlines as my full time job, my head is not always in the CFI world. This is my way to stay informed.

What would you like to see change in aviation?: More stick and rudder skills It seems like it's a lost art and I need to fix a lot of this at the commercial level. Crosswinds are usually a very weak point for all general aviation pilots.

Any suggestions on how the above might be accomplished?: Required crosswind practice in gusty winds would be a good start.

Who are your role models in aviation?: My past instructors and mentors! I am forever grateful to them for everything they have taught me. I believe in continuously learning whether it be from a seasoned pilot or a newer one. You never know what you can learn if you don't listen to others.
