UK-based instrument-rated flight instructor with extensive experience in Europe and the US. I thrive on the variety that flight instruction offers, from taking those up for their first flight, through the PPL training course and subsequently on to IFR airways procedures.

I am a US-based FAA-certified flight instructor with over 30 years of experience in general aviation airplanes, gliders, and simulators. Whether it’s just simulating a takeoff and landing or practicing the intricate dance between ATC, you, an approach flown to minimums with a G1000 avionics suite, and an EFB, I enjoy being a part of the outcome as much as the pilot in training!

I discovered aviation through flight simulators at the age of 8 and quickly developed a passion for flying. I used home flight simulators extensively during my training, and I firmly believe in using flight simulation as a catalyst to accelerate flight training and improve Decision-Making skills.

CL-65 (CRJ)
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.

Cessna Citation Mustang (CE-510s)
My aviation interest started when my parents bought me Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 when I was a child. I started training towards my PPL at the age of 13, went solo at 16 and qualified as a private pilot at 18. I trained for my FAA ratings and stayed in Florida teaching EASA and FAA students until 2018 when I decided to move back to the UK for an airline job.

Boeing 737 300-900
I am a New Zealand-based helicopter pilot, flight instructor, and examiner with over 10,000 flight hours, primarily in helicopters. I especially love teaching people with no previous flight experience the thrill of flying helicopters, as well as fixed-wing pilots who want to try their hand at rotary.

I retired from American Airlines as an A320 Captain with 15000 hours of flying experience and over 2000 hours of instructing. I’m passionate about the future of aviation instruction using desktop simulators to dramatically reduce cost, enhance safety and broaden exposure to different operational scenarios and equipment.
