Like you, I have a love of flying that has never ended. It started when I was a very young. My father would take me out to the airport and we would watch the aircraft take-off and land.
I actually got him interested in further pursuing aviation and we both went on to get our private pilot licenses on the same day. A big thrill for both of us. Saving up my money from paper routes, mowing yards and what not, I soloed just after my 16th birthday and then went on to obtain my Commercial, CFI, CFII, MEI and ATP, all by age 23. Since then I have had an incredible flying career and accumulated over 24,000 hours, including instructing in aircraft ranging from a Piper J-3 Cub to the Boeing 777. I was fortunate enough to land a job at American Airlines, where is spent over 20 years, literally flying all over the world.
I have taught hundreds of people how to fly and fully understand how each person learns at different rates. I build an individualized program that matches your specific needs, not a cookie cutter approach to flying that you might get at some flights schools.
Just remember, a required part of effective flight instruction is experience.
