What is rewarding to you about being a CFI?

Ever since growing up among the cornfields of Indiana, I have been fascinated by the world of aerospace and aviation. Thanks to this remarkable and innovative field, I have had opportunities to design geosynchronous satellites and help astronauts make repairs while in orbit. However, there is nothing like the breathtaking experience of taking the controls of an aircraft and taking flight. Sharing this passion for aviation, and creating opportunities to explore our world in a new and exciting way, is what flight instruction is all about. To help cultivate the best in your experience with aviation, we will customize your training around the way you learn, safe procedures and a commitment to developing the highest levels of proficiency for you as a pilot.
