I have always been fascinated by flight. Having been an Air Cadet for 7 years, achieved a Specialist High School Skills Major in Aviation, and then graduated from a rigorous College Aviation program, I have been committed to this career path from a young age. I loved the Brampton Flight Centre experience to become an Instructor, and after having worked as an Instructor at an airport, now want to share my knowledgeable, safety conscious, concise and supportive teaching style with you at BFC for all licenses. I have experienced flying a Cessna 172 (land and sea), Zlins, and Piper Seminoles. Having acquired my Float Rating as well as my night rating and multi IFR., I hope you will enjoy working with me. I am an individual who not only loves aviation but has a variety of interests, from Swimming to playing hockey. Come fly with me, and we’ll work on you achieving your goals.

My passion for flying was first introduced on a family vacation in 2010 on a flight from St. Maarten to Nevis/St. Kitts. I noticed that there was no cockpit door and worked my way to the very front. I watched as the Captain ran through his checklists, taxied to the runway, and prepared for our take-off. Engines roaring through my ears, I sat at the very edge of my seat. As he raised the nose we were airborne, there was nothing in front of us except the endless Atlantic. This was the very moment I fell in love. Through Brampton Flight Centre I have been able to achieve the steps required to reach my goals as a pilot and flight instructor. I look forward to being a part of your journey in becoming a pilot.

While completing my degree in Nutrition, I started exploring the field of aviation by working at YYZ. Being in direct contact with crews and aircrafts like the 777, 787 and 737 inspired me to achieve my childhood dream to become a pilot. I completed all my training at BFC, and I know you will enjoy the friendly and professional environment here. I look forward to being a part of your journey in aviation!

“Learning to fly is challenging, but incredibly rewarding, and most importantly tons of fun! After working several different jobs in different industries, I decided to give my childhood dream a shot, and booked a discovery flight here at BFC. The moment we took off I was hooked, and signed up for lessons as soon as we landed. I have completed all my licenses here at BFC and can offer great insight into making the most out of your training. Whether you’re working full time and flying once or twice a week, or want to fly every single day, I’m always here to help. Watching yourself progress and improve is one of the best feelings there is, and I’d love to guide you along your journey into the skies.”

Born in a family with aviation background and living my childhood around fighter aircrafts, instilled in me a passion to dance with the clouds. After completing my degree in BSc (IT), to fulfill my dreams I came to Brampton Flying School. An introductory flight ride will leave an impression which will last a lifetime. As a Flight Instructor I feel, ’Great Pilots are not born, but made with steady Coaching , much Practice and Experience’.

I’ve been fascinated by airplanes since I was small and always dreamed of learning how to fly. I began flight training at BFC in 1989 and made it a reality.

Teaches: All Licences
I was six years old when I had the opportunity to be on my first flight in the jump seat of a 737. I was amazed by the feeling of flying, and looking at the plane cloud surfing at a very high speed from the cockpit was in itself a mesmerizing experience with no words to describe it. Since that day, I knew exactly what I would do for a living: flying planes. Right after high school, I started my aviation career in 2013 and have enjoyed it more and more every take off and landing I do! Whether your aim is to become an airline pilot or flying for fun, come and join Brampton Flight Centre. Let’s share our passion for aviation together! Feel free to contact me and I will help you achieve your goal in aviation.

Growing up near an Airforce base in India made me dream of piloting an aircraft myself one day. That dream came true when I did my first solo in 2019. Before that, I completed my diploma in aviation operations at Seneca. After which I did my flight training at Sault college and graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Aviation technology- Flight.  
Even after numerous takeoffs and landing under my belt, I still get excited for the next flight like it’s my first. I’m here to share my passion for aviation and the knowledge I have gained in the journey, to fulfill my dream and yours!

I have an accurate approximation of 21,500 hours. I hold Airline Transport Pilot Licence, Class I Instructor, 1,200 hours of turbine time, 350 hours jet time, former Air Cadet.
My favorite catch phrase….. It doesn’t matter how many hours you have, the most important hour is the next one!

I have had an interest in airplanes as far back as I can remember. maybe it was that 40 minute ride over Toronto in a Viscount in the mid sixties that provided the first spark. It was many years after that Viscount ride before I was able to pursue my interest any further.
I earned my Private Pilot License in 1979 in North Bay during my spare time while attending college. After graduating from college, I worked through Commercial Pilot training at BFC, completing my CPL flight test in January 1982. The next opportunity to pursue my interest in flying had to wait until I retired. After a full career in aircraft maintenance, I achieved by Instructor Rating at BFC in December 2017.
I am quite excited to be a part of the flight training staff at Brampton Flight Center and look forward to being able to share the joys and wonders of flying with anyone.
