About Me

Chris is an FAA-certified flight instructor with over 20 years of experience in general aviation planes and simulators.

He started flying in college using Microsoft Flight Simulator 98 to supplement his training.

When not working as an engineer, you can find him at an airport or flying virtually to test his skills and for entertainment.

A firm believer in using flight simulation to reinforce real-world flying, he enjoys teaching students at every level.


“A quick note to let you know that Chris is a GREAT partner to have in this coaching enterprise. He was able to take someone that had not been in a real cockpit for over 20 yrs and was only semi-computer literate and get them programming the GL1000 and auto piloting it. The GL1000 is really a very complex device and of course four sessions only touches the surface, but it was well coached and I am able to navigate basic functions on it that result in successful flights.”
