I began flying in 1996 at Jacksonville University. This is where I earned most of my pilot certificates and ratings. I began flight instructing in my junior year and have been doing it ever since. Aside from teaching, I have flown as a charter pilot, night cargo pilot, regional airline pilot, and major airline pilot. Currently I hold an Airline Transport Pilot certificate with over 10,000 hours of flight time. Although I have extensive flight instructing experience, I am Race City Flight Operations’ newest flight instructor.
My role with Race City is teaching Private Pilot and Instrument Pilot ground schools. As for flight training, I focus primarily on training licensed pilots to fly in zero visibility conditions. This is known as “instrument training”. Pilots learn how to control and navigate their airplanes solely by reference to the cockpit instruments. At the completion of their training and testing, these pilots have earned an “Instrument Rating”. Have you ever wondered how pilots takeoff and land in foggy conditions or fly through clouds? Instrument training equips pilots with the necessary skills to do this.
Whether you are interested in aviation as a career, recreation, or something in between, I or one of our other dedicated instructors can help you achieve your goals. Feel free to call or email me and I will be happy to answer your questions.
