Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: I was born this way.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: Just starting on my FoI as a step towards CFI, so pretty much now.

Why did you join SAFE?: I've heard it's an excellent resource and the foreflight discount is great.

What would you like to see change in aviation?: Reinstate all the VORs. Decommissioning them is very short-sited and will make pilots overly reliant on GPS.

Any suggestions on how the above might be accomplished?: Write our congressperson, otherwise it'll probably take a few people flying into mountains to get the general public's attention, unfortunately.
