Flying has always been a joy–I started designing and building radio-controlled airplanes and gliders in high school. I began flying real airplanes while earning my MS in physics with a minor in aeronautics at San Jose State University.
I competed on the San Jose Precision Flight Team and United States Precision Flight Team and was ranking top 15 nationwide in 1986, gaining flight experience in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Oklahoma. I have flown in California, Oregon Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and have trained about 25 PPL students and 4 Commercial Students.

Flying is fun and opens the world to more opportunities. I had tons of fun learning to fly. Learning to fly with precision improves navigational skills as well as safety and landing skills. I was held to a very high standard both when I was taught to fly and throughout my professional career. I expect and hold my students to a similar standard.
