For most people flying is a dream. Charlie is no different – he’s always known he wanted to be a pilot. His dad used to take him flying when he was little, renting a plane out of Petaluma on the weekends. He grew up listening to stories about his grandpa flying as a Canadian bush pilot, and his dad flying in Michigan. Charlie took his first lessons at 14 in San Diego and now holds a CFI, CFII, and MEI. Charlie has trained and taught in various locations including, NorCal, SoCal, Arizona, Nevada, Florida, and Georgia. He’s very happy to have landed here with the great team at Mach5.
