Making a difference
I find it exhilarating to see the look on a person’s face when they experience flight for the first time. As an instructor, it is very rewarding to guide people who share my passion for flight in making their dreams a reality and seeing them progress in ability.

At the end of July, 14 students and I traveled to the annual EAA Oshkosh AirVenture exposition and air show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The weeklong international event is considered to be one of the premier gathering spots for aviators, aerospace companies, and industry enthusiasts from around the world, where over 200,000 people and thousands of aircraft typically visit each year.
