Q & A

What drew you to aviation?: Lifelong goal and flying rescue dogs.

Why did you join SAFE?: Met David St George at AOPA Groton Fly-In

What would you like to see change in aviation?: More accessible training.

Any suggestions on how the above might be accomplished?: All three of my CFIs were great and the last two were building time and moved onto the regionals; nothing wrong with that since they were obviously extremely skilled and I benefited from that. However, I hope to retire in a remote area in UT and from visits I see a lack a accessibility to CFIs in that area. I hope to become a CFI and work one-on-one with students taking them all the way through their training.
