Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: My bloodline and my desire to make my hobby my career.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: Learning since 1980
Teaching since 1985

What's your favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: Seeing the "click" on a student's face when he finally "gets it" and enters the Land of Crystal Clarity

What's your least favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: When student's don't strive to learn what they can is a close tie with the unfortunate high cost of learning to fly.
