Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: I was always put my nose up to look at airplane flying by. Started travel the country to assist airshows of any kind when i was a youth.
I start working for a company that was producing publications for helicopters maintenance manuals, but at one point I realized that I wanted to be more involved in aviation and I decided to follow the path of the pilot career, along the way I discover the joy of teaching how to fly.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: I got the CFI license in 2021 but my I was alway spreading the joy and love for aviation.

What's your favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: See the eyes of people when they really approach aviation for the first time.

What's your least favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: The worst part is when I have to decline a training or see that someone gives up training or doesn't have access to it.

Why did you join SAFE?: I think is a good think be part of a community of people that have passion for aviation education as yourself.

What would you like to see change in aviation?: The view that a lot of people have about aviation. A world more reachable for everyone.

Any suggestions on how the above might be accomplished?: Flight Schools needs to be more open e transparent about training, operations and prices.
Flight instructors need to be more approachable and maybe modify their rates to meet the students needs.
And both need to give back to the community and try to bring people close to aviation without thinking about making a profit.

Any accomplishments in, or noteworthy contributions to aviation and/or aviation education you'd like to mention?: I'm collaborating with a flight school and we are creating programs and collaborations (all no profit) to bring people, especially kids and youths, close to aviation in a general way speaking

Who are your role models in aviation?: My role model is every pilot that has a big love for aviations and loves spreading it
