Flight Instructor, Primary
When I was in High School, a retired Air Force veteran and a neighbor friend flew the Cessna 340 for his son’s construction company. One 5:00 AM morning after his enthusiastic invitation, I found myself sitting in the right seat accelerating into the darkness toward the end of a Chattanooga runway … I’ve loved aviation ever since! While attending Virginia Tech, I learned to pilot the single-engine variety flying over the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Family took priority for a 20-year hiatus until the friendly staff at USAF welcomed me back into the sky in 2017. Now, as a CFI, I’m allowed to pass along the thrill of that first flight to others and help them achieve their aviation goals.
