American Flyers Spotlight: Featured Instructors

 

“My favorite part of training new pilots is seeing the fire and energy a new aspiring aviator brings. Training new pilots helps myself recapture that enthusiasm and realize what a privilege it is to be in the air doing something you dreamt of as a kid. I’m currently working on my MEI while I continue to work for American Flyers.”

“My favorite part of working for American Flyers is my co-workers and the environment I get to work in. It is an absolute joy to come to work each day and I look forward to it. And as an instructor, I love imparting my knowledge to one another. It is a good feeling. I also love getting to know a lot of good people, and seeing them grow as pilots as they progress through the program.”
Daniel Russell

 

“My favorite part of training new pilots is the gratifying feeling watching a student pilot solo for the first time. There is nothing quite like seeing a new pilot’s first time. I’m grateful to American Flyers for not only allowing me to experience that feeling, but to be constantly surrounded by some of the most knowledgeable and motivated people in the business. It helps me be a better pilot too.”

Seeing the smiles on students’ faces when something finally click is my favorite part of being a CFI. I enjoy watching them progress from brand new students to becoming a commercial-rated multi-engine pilot. American Flyers has great structured, academy-style training programs with talented individuals which makes my job so easy! Everyone here is passionate about each student’s success.”

I love watching their knowledge grow throughout the different stages of training all while assisting them to set personal goals for themselves in the program. As for me, I am currently working towards my Gold Seal CFI and MEI.”
