Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: I grew up around planes and not far from military bases. So, I had the bug early. After high school, I worked for a few years before going to college. In that time, I had enough extra money to get my private in the LA area. When I did go to school, I went through the University of Illinois Institute of Aviation for my advanced certificates.

How long have you been involved in aviation education?: I've been a CFI since the 90s

What's your favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: I love helping people become great at what they love

What's your least favorite part of what you do in aviation education?: Being an independent instructor is difficult.

Why did you join SAFE?: I want to continue to learn and help others around me.

What would you like to see change in aviation?: I would like to see a radical change in the airline industry to better engage and support their pilot pipeline.

Any suggestions on how the above might be accomplished?: I have many opinions and some innovative ideas. Corner me sometime and lets talk.
