CORINA KUEBLER, Flight Instructor (CFI)
My passion for aviation started before I was born when my mom was a flight attendant. As a young girl she would take me to the Miami airport to sit and watch the planes take off and land above us. However my own career in aviation didn’t begin until after I graduated from Florida State University and became a Delta Air Lines flight attendant based in NYC. I loved meeting new people and traveling the world but I always caught myself dreaming of being in the flight deck. After a few years as a flight attendant, I met my now husband on a Seattle layover and after a year of a cross country relationship I decided to take a leap and transfer to Seattle. While flying in Seattle, I met some amazing Delta pilots who encouraged me to do a discovery flight. I was hooked and completed my private pilot license, instrument rating, and commercial single engine in Seattle which gave me amazing actual instrument experience. My husband and I decided to move back to Charlotte after a few years in the pnw to be closer to family after the pandemic. Once we were settled, I started CFI training at KEQY then took a little detour to get my commercial multi engine rating down in Orlando so that I could apply to Delta’s Propel Pilot Career Path Program. Once back home in Charlotte, I finished up my CFI and found out I was accepted into the Delta Propel Program!
When I’m not flying I’m hanging out at home with my five dogs Deebo, Penelope, Marlowe, Hamish, and Mike (husband).

ANDERSON DOWLING, Flight Instructor (CFI/I)
Like many others, my career in aviation has stemmed from a childhood passion. As I approached my 30th birthday, I knew it was either now or never and decided to follow this lifelong dream of becoming a pilot. I started flight training in October 2019, and 9 months later I was a Certified Flight Instructor. I then instructed out of Orlando Executive Airport for over a year and then moved my family to Charlotte, where we hope to make our permanent home.
WAYNE COOK, Flight Instructor (CFI/I/MEI)
I started in aviation as a USAF Rescue helicopter pilot. After 13 years, I transferred to the United States Army National Guard and retired 15 years later as a Master Aviator. While in the USAF, I became a helicopter test pilot and continued in the National Guard. After retirement, I added fixed wing certifications. My goal is to impart my experience for those wanting to either make a career or just learn to fly for fun, SAFELY. Come join our team at Race City Flight Operations.
