I'm here to get you flying!

I'm an independent flight instructor serving aviators past, present, and future in the southern Sierra Nevadas and high desert of California.  I specialize in helping new pilots earn their wings, returning pilots to flight, and aircraft transition training by providing persoanlized 1-on-1 instruction in the air and on the ground to fit your needs.  I operate out of Inyokern Airport (KIYK) serving primarily the nearby communities of Ridgecrest, Inyokern, and China Lake.

I have experience in a variety of aircraft ranging across the aviation spectrum including aerobatic gliders, light sport and homebuilt aircraft like the Sonex and RV-12, technically advanced aircraft with G1000 avionics such as the Diamond DA-40 and late model Cessnas, unlimited competition aerobatic aircraft like the Extra 330LC, classic aircraft such as the Luscombe 8, as well as a number of training aircraft including Citabrias, and Cessnas from 150s through 182s.  I've yet to meet an airplane I didn't like! 

I sincerely hope I can share the fun of flying with you today.


Visiting Santa Paula, visiting friends, and having fun!
