My main responsibility is to prepare students to be safe, competent and proficient pilots. I believe every CFI has a duty to provide the very best flight instruction possible and, of course, to make flying fun.
I was born and raised in a small, backwoods town in the north part of New Hampshire. I grew up skiing and was an avid football player through high school. I joined the U.S. Army when I was 18 and left home shortly after graduating high school. I spent almost six years with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, New York. I decided to reenlist for the 101st Airborne Division located here at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. That is how I wound up in Clarksville, which is where I have been living for several years. I left the Army and, shortly after, began flight training with Wings of Eagles in Clarksville. With a newfound passion for aviation, I decided to pursue a degree in aeronautics through Liberty University which lead me to continue my training with WOE, and, eventually work as a CFI. I am happily married and most of my family still lives in the Northeast.
I enjoy flying, ice climbing, skiing, woodworking and automotive repair.
My Favorite Thing About Wings
I love the flexibility Wings of Eagles offers. They have a unique climate in which the instructors are able to tailor their schedules to meet the needs of the students. Additionally, they have a nice fleet of airplanes with up-to-date avionics.
My Message to You
Remember, no matter where you are in life, when you start something new, you must pay your dues. Be patient, good things are to come.
