Train With Me
Professional & Personalized Aircraft Training
Training Designed for YOU
My aircraft training is designed around you, and isn't a cookie cutter approach. I meet you where you're at. It's my goal to have you feel safe, proficient, and confident when I sign you off.
Ask Me Anything
With over 40+ years of flying experience, I've seen many different scenarios and emergencies. We'll cover all essential systems, and also perform thorough simulated emergencies to boost your skills and confidence.
Understand Your Aircraft
The dynamics of flying don't really change. But weather does, and so does each aircraft. I'll teach you exactly how to manage, control, and maximize the performance of your aircraft.
Efficient and Maximized Training
I know you're a busy person juggling a lot, I can relate. My training doesn't waste your time—or mine—and we'll focus training where it's needed most to ensure your competency and skill.
I've known Rich as a friend and an instructor for more than 10 years.
He has taught me to fly a Cirrus, a Meridian, a Citation Mustang, and also trained me for the avionics upgrade (Rockwell Pro Line Fusion) for my current airplane, a Citation CJ3.
Rich is not only incredibly knowledgeable about flying, he is also a lot of fun.
I have become the pilot I am due to Rich and his constant drive for safety, currency and proficiency.
