Instructor Profile

My First Solo

Instructor Profile and First Solo

Teaching flying since 1992. It's time to Fly .... again!

Born to Fly!

I went first solo after 57 minutes of dual instruction on a three day course

Even as a very experienced flying instructor with a very patient and calm demeanour, I have my share of frightening flying experiences.

I have flown about 75 types of aircraft and owned 20 of all types!

I promise you, flying will be the most fun you will ever have sitting down with your clothes on!!!!

Here's a complilation of First Solos. The most memorable experience for any pilot!

I couldn’t stuff it up now, not with the big (QANTAS) boys watching! 

My adrenaline then began flowing as I knew what was about to happen...

... it was time for me to fly alone for the first time. I have always wanted to soar the skies and earn the title of Pilot.
