I teach for both of the premier Beechcraft training providers. I have worked with the Bonanza & Baron Pilot Training www.pbpt.org for many years and have flown with hundreds of Bonanza owners at training seminars around the country. This organization continues to provide the ultimate "in-person" training experience delivered by some of the best instructors available. I continue to be humbled and honored to work with them.
I also teach for the American Bonanza Society's BPPP program. www.bonanza.org. Tom Turner and the folks at ABS have developed a variety of excellent training courses for Bonanza pilots who can train with vetted instructors who are available in their local areas.
I also work directly with Bonanza owners to provide transition training, insurance required checkouts, flight reviews and Instrument Proficiency Checks.
If you have ever dreamed for flying a floatplane, I can help make that happen. There is no type of flying I enjoy more. In fact, I took my Cessna 182 Amphib from Texas to Alaska in 2020 to spend the summer exploring the Tongass National Forest. You'll find photos and stories about that trip in other sections of the website. Please check them out and let me know what you think.
As of June, 2023, I have teamed up with my friend Tres Clinton who owns C3 Air www.flyc3.com to provide seaplane training in his beautiful Top Cub. Whether you want a basic Airplane Single Engine Sea rating at the Private or Commercial level, an in-depth adventure course or just an opportunity to experience the thrill of landing on the water, Tres can make it happen.
If you happen to own a seaplane and would like some additional instruction, please get in touch.
I spent over 10 years as a Designated Pilot Examiner and conducted more than 2500 practical tests including Private, Commercial, Instrument and Certified Flight Instructor. Although I am no longer doing testing, I often assist pilots in preparing for their exams. While I prefer working with clients in person, we can schedule a Zoom Meeting and conduct both training and mock checkride activities. Many pilots have taken advantage of this service to better understand the nature of the test and to reduce the anxiety that every pilot experiences when being examined.
Speaking and Seminars
If you are looking for a dynamic presentation for your aviation group please get in touch. I have presented a variety of seminars to thousands of aviators on a variety of subjects. Whether you are interested in a safety seminar, backcountry adventure, practical test preparation or IFR training topics, I would be happy to help. Let's discuss what you are looking for and let me put together a fun and educational presentation.
