Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: I grew up looking up at airplanes flying overhead and decided to be the one up in the airplane looking out at the world.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: Over 25 exciting and rewarding years!

What's your favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: The moment when students stop thinking like a student and their inner pilot in command takes over.

What's your least favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: Is there such a thing?

Do you have a memorable aviation experience you'd like to share?: My "first cloud" – when the cockpit became my world and the instrument panel became an extension of my senses.

Why did you join SAFE?: Being a professional and an educator it is important to join others to exchange current and ongoing ideas and challenges.

Any accomplishments in, or noteworthy contributions to aviation and/or aviation education you'd like to mention?: Every student who has soloed or passed a knowledge or practical examination after flying with me – I like to think that I had a part in (although ultimately it is) their accomplishment.

Who are your role models in aviation?: Every flight instructor I have known and many of the students with whom I have flown, each bringing his/her own perspective and focus, abilities and challenges.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Let's fly!
