The Instructors 


Picked up flying in 2016 as a hobby, it is now an obsession. I am now a CFI, CFII, and think everybody should have the opportunity to fly. One thing I love is watching somebody who has never been in a plane learn how to land.


Our chief Flight instructor, has been a flight instructor since 1988. CFI, CFII, MEI, ATP certified. Loves to teach and works hard to make safe, efficient pilots. 


Likes to teach when he is not flying with Sky West. He Is CFI, CFII, ATP certified. Makes a mean taco.

Growing up in Idaho I thought crop dusting would be the coolest job. In 2019 I began my journey into aviation. My goals have shifted from being an agricultural pilot to international flying. Once I am done obtaining my ratings, I want to volunteer as much of my time as possible to Pilots N Paws.


 A CFI sense 2018, likes tacos and walking in the rain. Currently flies in the wilds of Alaska.


"I like to fly because the feeling of freedom you get from leaving the ground and the views from 10,000 feet can’t be beat!”


Loves to walk in the rain and currently flies in beautiful Hawaii.
