Jesse Ekkerd

I discovered aviation through flight simulators at the age of 8 and quickly developed a passion for flying. I obtained my Private Pilots License (PPL) in high school while extensively using flight simulators. After graduating, I completed my Commercial Pilot License and Instructor Rating and became the youngest flight instructor in the history of the largest flight school in Africa. I also have training on turboprop airliners such as the Beechcraft 1900. I am a firm believer in using flight simulation as a catalyst to accelerate flight training and improve Aeronautical Decision Making skills. I believe that any pilot who wants to become a master at their craft will need to use a personal flight simulator, even if it only includes a basic joystick. If you're interested in working together, I encourage you to set up a free consultation. I look forward to talking soon!
