I started flying at Mid Island in June 1976. Three months later I had earned my Private.  I had completed my Instrument, Commercial and CFI by 1978 when I began instructing part time for MIAS.  Instructing is my first love and I’ve been doing it ever since. 

My current ratings are:  ATP:  Airplane - Single & Multi Engine Land,  Rotorcraft - Helicopter, Commercial Glider, and CFI-II-MEI –Airplane & Helicopter.   With the exception of Turbine and Helicopter, all of my training has been with Mid Island Flight School and I’m pleased to be working with their staff of instructors as their Chief Flight Instructor.

I’ve been a corporate pilot for the past nine years, eight as a captain on NetJets 200 Super King Air, ferrying their top corporate staff all over the east coast.  I was the Check Airman in the 200 for NetJets located at Bradley International Airport and worked with the Windsor Locks FSDO keeping their Check Airmen current in the 200 King Air.

I am presently flying Part 91 and 135 corporate charters on King Air 90 and 200 series airplanes, Piper Navajo Chieftains and a Bell Jet Ranger Turbine Helicopter.  I instruct in everything from Cubs to King Airs, Tail wheel to Turbine, and Warbirds to Helicopters.

I am currently improving my skills by adding Instrument Instructor-Helicopter and ATP Rotocraft Ratings.

When not instructing, I might be flying for pleasure or tinkering with my car collection – often combining both hobbies by flying to car shows!
