I’m an airline pilot with over ten years of experience in the aviation industry. I have been a Full Flight Simulator instructor since 2018, teaching on the A320 and the B787. I’m always looking to learn; this desire took me to the simulator world, where I started practicing at a very young age. I enjoy teaching both complete beginners as well as those looking to learn advanced aviation operations.
