I have been flying since I was 15 years old.  I soloed on my 16th birthday and became a Private Pilot at 18 years old.  After graduation from college, career and family took precedence and I took a hiatus from flying.  Twelve years later however, I returned to aviation and worked on my instrument rating, Commercial Pilot Certificate, CFII rating, and multi-engine ratings full time.  I have been an active flight instructor ever since, and I have spent the last several years flying primarily in Civil Air Patrol.  Recently I completed training for and now hold an SIC Type Rating in the Embraer 505 Phenom 300 a nine (9) passenger turbojet.  In retirement, I fly as First Officer with an on-demand carrier based in Naples, FL, but I love to teach as a Flight Instructor.  Please contact me and let's discuss how I might help you achieve your aviation dreams.            

Check out some of my recent aviation adventure destinations in the Phenom 300.
