Primary, instrument, and commercial flight instruction for airplanes. Specializing in G1000 (glass panel) instruction. I currently instruct with Aurora Flight Training in Aurora, Oregon.

My goal is to get you to be a safe and proficient pilot is efficiently as possible. I do this by emphasizing control of the airplane. Other instructors take you up and let the airplane fly you until you figure out how to turn the tables. From the first lesson I show you exactly how to use the controls and exactly what you should be looking at to verify you indeed have control of the airplane.

As pilots, our job is to control the airplane. Combinations of control inputs result in specific performance. Performances combine to accomplish maneuvers. Maneuvers combine to accomplish navigation and navigation steps added together make up a flight. I teach you the control inputs for each maneuver and also how to break down each step of flight so you know what control inputs are needed.

Tips about learning to fly.
