Paul is the second of three generations of commercial pilots. Stories of Uncle Ted flying Spitfires over Britain in WW2 ignited his passion for aviation. From the beginning, the focus of Paul?s instructing career has been on delivering that all important first 50 hours of instruction. His understanding, focus and passion is instilled in every instructor he trains. Those 3,000 minutes of coaching often determines the outcome of an event 3,000 hours later.

MULTI/IFR Instructor

I have been passionate about flying for as long as I can remember. Teaching someone to fly is a privilege and one of the most satisfying jobs ever. As an instructor, I have a chance to share that joy with my students and continue to learn about flying from each one of them. Learning to fly is a dream many talk and dream about.  So If your goal is to fly for pleasure or professionally, Pacific Flying Club can help you achieve that goal!

Let's have some fun flying together!
