A few pilots, always trying to improve, seek an experienced instructor whose focus is them, not his own next rating. An instructor who is a skilled pilot. A patient instructor whose extensive experience has made him humble. A career teacher who flies, not a career flyer who teaches. An instructor who can't decide which he likes more, an Ercoupe or a King Air.
Don't think "I don't know enough to work with a professor." As a professor, I enjoy starting at the basics as much as I enjoy more advanced work.
I am based on Pocatello, ID, and am available for flight instruction anywhere, but I primarily serve Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming. Whatever kind of flying you want to do, it would be my great pleasure to help.
