Imagine...

Your mastery of aviation has taken hard work, but has proven to be very rewarding. You, as a pilot, have taken yourself and your passengers far above the realm of most humans. Your knowledge and skill are responsible for the safe and efficient performance of that awesome achievement – flight.

"Stop dreaming. Start Flying. Be a pilot."

First steps

There are three steps to get started:

  1. Find a good flight instructor
  2. Start reading about flying
  3. Take your first lesson

Take a look at the Instruction section for more information.

In addition to instruction, I can help you operate your airplane. Contact me for information about Commercial Pilot Services.

"Resources"—maybe a better word is "goodies"

My Resources for pilots, students, and instructors page has a collection of useful goodies, including weather, test standards, flight log forms, and others. Take a look!
