ABOUT RICH PICKETT

Passionate About Flight

Ever since my first exploratory flight with an instructor flying has had me hooked. Over forty years of private and professional flying, I'm still as enchanted and enthralled as I was that first day.

I continue to share my flying passion through high performance flight instruction, authoring aviation articlesdesigning and producing aircraft parts, and volunteering flights for those in need.

It's my hope to continue inspiring current and future pilots for many more years to come.
