I have been an FAA flight instructor since 2015 and have taught private, instrument, commercial, and multi-engine students. I have been flying flight simulators since 1995. I am easy-going, patient, and comfortable teaching basic to advanced topics on general aviation, airline, and DCS aircraft.

I served in the US Navy for 10 years as an aerospace engineer, and I have thousands of hours as a real-world flight instructor and pilot. I currently fly the CRJ-900 for the airlines, and general aviation planes as a CAP volunteer and instructor.

I am happy to help real-world flight students, sim enthusiasts, or those interested in Naval Aviation in DCS to learn and reach their goals. I have been using home flight simulation for my own training and to teach others since 2008.
