I am a dual rated ATP, Flight Instructor, A&P Mechanic, and aircraft manager with more than 30 years of experience in aviation. My flight time includes over 7,900 hours of flying & instructing without a single accident, incident, or violation. My experience is very diverse and includes flying & instructing in airplanes & helicopters, high density airspace operations, international flight operations (Canada, Central America, Caribbean), and high altitude operations over mountainous terrain (Over 4,000 hours operating out of Aspen, Colorado). In addition, I have extensive experience mentoring pilots in high performance turboprops, jets, and helicopters and I am highly proficient in single pilot IFR operations. Most importantly, I pride myself on being profoundly safety conscious as well as a conservative decision maker.

As a mechanic, my extensive knowledge of aircraft systems allows me to often recognize issues early on and remedy them before they become an inconvenience or a hazard.
My experiences operating my own businesses have allowed me to develop excellent customer service skills. I am always looking for opportunities to go above and beyond what is expected, and I work hard to anticipate the needs of clients.
