Flight training is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences available to us. It is the first step to the world of flying, sometimes as a hobby, or in other cases a career in the sky. I am a Certified flight instructor in the Portland Oregon and Columbia Gorge area. I specialize in training for Beechcraft Bonanza/Debonair pilots, and also Tail wheel aircraft. If you are a pilot and have just purchased a Beech Bonanza, or Tail Wheel aircraft and would like instruction in these aircraft feel free to call me, or send me an email. I can help you become proficient and safe in your aircraft allowing you to enjoy the sky and the plane to its full potential.
After touching the controls of a Beechcraft Bonanza at 8 years old I haven’t looked back. In 2005 I graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with a BA in Aeronautical Science. Since then I have gained many flight hours in Europe and the Pacific Northwest. I grew up flying the Bonanza, and still do. This has led to me specializing in the Beechcraft Bonanza series (a truly fantastic flying aircraft). I have been flying tail wheel aircraft since 2009, and most recently got a check out in an AT-6 Texan.
Please take the time to look through the website, and contact me with any questions regarding flight training! Getting into flying is much easier than you may think.
It is my goal to give you the most gratifying training experience, while passing on the professional and safe approach to flying that I gained at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
