About my style of instructing…

My first consideration is your safety. All of our training will be accomplished while strictly adhering to the FAA’s and the manufacturer’s safety and best practices techniques.

My second concern is complying with regulatory requirements. My Citation training is designed to meet or exceed insurance and FAA mandates.

Next, I want you to have a great learning experience. I create a personalized training scenario based on your Cessna Citation experience level, type of flying and personal goals.

Finally, finding an instructor that knows your airplane and learning style is critical. I’m equally at home communicating with owner flown or professional pilots while still being an effective teacher.
