Bob began flying in 1981 and became an aircraft owner shortly thereafter. At that point, Bob was a Senior Executive at a computer service company serving the Savings and Loan industry. His airplane was used for business and pleasure.
Like a lot of first time buyers, Bob’s first airplane was a Cessna 172. The airport where Bob learned to fly later became a horse farm. Disgustingly, the hangers became horse stalls.
Wanting more performance, he purchased an RG Cardinal. Later came a Piper Seneca and a Cessna 182 modified for Skydiving. As airplanes progressed, so did more advanced ratings.
Bob began flying professionally after a career in management and sales. He says that Flight Instruction is a way to give back to the flying community and he enjoys watching others progress.
Ratings include Commercial Pilot with Multi-engine and Instrument airplane, CFI and CFII. Bob has accumulated 4400 flight hours and is also a “retired Skydiver”, having jumped for 48 years and made some 2200 jumps.
