Teaching Philosophy

Emphasize self-awareness, critical thinking, and discipline to gain knowledge with a complete understanding and ability to adapt and apply the knowledge to rapidly changing and unpredictable environments utilizing highly refined piloting skills, sound judgment, and conservative decision-making in both crew and single-pilot operations. Traditional, hands-on learning with a modern twist utilizing the most up-to-date technology, multimedia, and networking to develop an understanding of the material so that it can be quickly retrieved and applied while airborne under pressure. Develop character, values, and long-term relationships to impact the future through feedback, networking, and information exchanges to modify teaching methods and techniques. Foster relationships with the industry, AOPA, EAA, SSA, and the Air Safety Foundation to enhance my instruction.
