Welcome! Want to fly?

Have you ever gazed up at the small airplane flying over your home, wondering who those people are and where they are going? Have you always wanted to fly but never knew where to start? I can help you!

Note: At this time I am not available for primary (initial) instruction or any instruction leading to issuance of a new certificate. I am only performing flight reviews, IPCs, or piston Beechcraft specific instruction.

With your effort and my guidance, you can achieve the accomplishment of being a pilot!   Here's how.

I am an FAA certificated flight instructor, teaching out of Palo Alto airport (KPAO) in Palo Alto, CA. I can also travel to San Carlos (KSQL), San Jose (KSJC), or Reid-Hillview (KRHV) to teach in your aircraft.

I give flight and ground instruction towards the following achievements:

  • Sport Pilot Certificate
  • Private Pilot Certificate
  • Commercial Certificate
  • Instrument rating
  • Multi-Engine rating
For those who already fly, I am available for:
  • Flight reviews
  • Instrument proficiency checks
  • Complex or high performance checkouts
  • Mountain instruction/checkouts
  • Aspen avoinics glass panel instruction
  • Additional add-on ratings
  • Additional aircraft checkouts
  • Local airspace/procedure familiarization
  • Ferry pilot or copilot/safety pilot
  • Other specific subject areas as desired - just ask!

Think of me as your personal tutor for your aviation goals. Lessons are always one-on-one with instruction tailored to your schedule and needs.
