Flight Instructor at Trade Winds Aviation

A Flight Instructor is the face of aviation to everyone that learns to fly. The conduct, opinions, and professionalism of a Flight Instructor will have a lasting impact on every student they encounter. The many hours spent together in the confined space of an enclosed cockpit are extremely influential. Every conversation will be recalled, every opinion will be remembered, and every flying skill demonstrated will be ingrained in that pilot for countless more hours, long after their initial training.
