Personalized Flight Training Programs
I offer a wide variety of flight training to meet your needs,
schedule, and location. If you own or rent a plane I can meet you
at your location. You can also meet me either in Palo Alto, CA for
some high traffic density flying or Friday Harbor, WA for some beautiful
flights around western Washington. If you need to rent a plane at
the Palo Alto Airport, I am an instructor at
which offers a number of Cessna and Piper aircraft. Contact

My preference is to complete an
Instrument Rating in blocks of
dedicated time. I use a
combination of flight training and
simulator training so that your time
is used efficiently. I can
bring an Elite Flight Simulator to
your location or we can use one
locally. I use the simulator
for procedures such as hold entries,
scanning, failed instruments, etc.
We use the aircraft to put together
radio communication, navigation,
weather, and approaches.
Before training starts, I like to
have students complete the FAA
written test using training from
either Jeppesen, King or Sporty's.
I follow the Jeppesen Instrument
Pilot Syllabus for the flight
