Welcome to my all-about-flying page. I'm a FAA-Certified Airline Transport Pilot and Flight Instructor with (SE) single-engine, multi-engine (ME), and instrument airplane (IA) ratings.

I originally created this site to advertise my instructional services, but it's become more of aviation blog, documenting my experience in various facets of aviation. All of the content is created for your enjoyment and, perhaps, education.

One of the things that attracted me to flying airplanes as opposed to shorter-range aircraft such as helicopters was the practical nature of using airplanes for travel. Read some of my travel adventures.

Sometimes I write articles that don't fit in any of the other sections, so I put them in here. Check out my grab-bag of articles!
