I became interested in flying as a young boy from my uncle who was a pilot. He would take me flying with him, and I knew then that I wanted to become a pilot as well. I earned my pilot certificate in 1978, continued my training and earned Instrument, Commercial, Multi-Engine, Helicopter and Flight Instructor ratings. I am a retired L.A. City Firefighter and still enjoy the thrill of flying. I like to share the joy of aviation with people who are interested in flying and seeking their pilot certificate.
