Mike started his aviation career back in 2008 when he earned his Private Pilot license. His Grandfather was the reason for his love of aviation. They flew everywhere together. He taught Mike his version of Aviate, navigate, communicate in a way only a grandpa can word it. He gave Mike the courage to fly across a couple states with ease and learning a valuable lesson about density altitude on a hot day in the dessert. Teaching is a passion of Mike’s because he himself had a very difficult time learning all the ground knowledge involved with aviation. With that in mind, he has developed multiple approaches to explain hard to understand concepts. He hopes to encourage his students and provide clutch knowledge in becoming a proficient and sharp pilot; with the added hope of being a voice in your head one day like his grandpa was in his.
