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 first flight at BFC was a life changing experience. Having already graduated university with a degree in engineering, it was only after that flight that I knew what I was going to do next. I completed my flight training at BFC, going on to earn an Instructor Rating so I could share my passion for aviation with others.  It is my mission to make your flight training experience as rewarding as mine was.

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.

Teaches: All Licences
I graduated from University with a bachelor’s of Science and Education degree but like many others I wasn’t sure of what to do next. So, I decided to take a discovery flight at the Brampton Flight Centre, after that flight I knew what I was going to do next. I began my flight training journey at BFC by joining the IATPL program and graduating from it in 2020. Once graduated, I began work on my instructor rating believing that my background in education and my passion for flying would create a great learning experience for students. Landing a job as an instructor was a dream come true and being able to help people achieve their aviation goals whether it is flying recreationally or professionally the journey is incredibly rewarding. I always try to provide students with a safe, efficient, and fun, learning experience on the way to accomplishing their goals. I am available to fly 7 days a week!

After over thirty years of recreational flying – including everything from gliders to vintage biplanes – I decided to pursue my interests in aviation full time as a Flight Instructor.

In addition, I also very much enjoy the opportunity to share my passion for classic, tail wheel equipped aircraft.

Class IV Instructor
Teaches: All Licences
My passion was evident from a very young age, with helicopter rides at age 5, trips to the airport, tours of new aircraft such as the 787 and having my own flight simulator. This passion for everything aviation led me to begin my journey at the Island Airport where I went up for my first flight. That flight only increased my passion for aviation and at that very moment, I chose to postpone my undergraduate degree program at U of T.  I was excited to start in the IATPL program at Brampton Flight College in 2018. 
As a flight instructor, I hope to bring the same excitement and success to my students. I will guide and assist my students to develop their skills and increase their aviation knowledge. My objective is to ensure that all my students are successful in their flight training and beyond.

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 always knew what I wanted to become the instant I saw an aircraft for the first time. Being the first pilot in my family, I am excited to see what lies ahead. Fortunately, I achieved my dream through the IATPL program here at BFC. My favourite part of being an instructor is helping individuals realize their aviation goals. I love learning new things every day and passing this knowledge and understanding to others. I am eager to be a part of your journey to becoming a pilot!

After being unsure about where my career path would take me, I began my training at BFC in 2019 and instantly fell in love with aviation. The challenging but extremely rewarding atmosphere is one you can only experience in this industry. I hope I can share some of my experiences with you, while making your flight training both as memorable and as fun as possible.

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.

I first flew a plane as part of a summer program before high school in 2010, and ever since then, flying is all I have wanted to do. During university, I was able to begin my flight training in earnest and obtained my Private Pilot’s License in 2018, shortly before starting the IATPL program at Brampton Flight Centre. After remaining at BFC all the way to the completion of my Flight Instructor Rating, it is where I now look to give others the wonderful experience that I had learning to fly. Whether you want to do it as a career like me, or just for fun, I am always ready to help make your goal of becoming a pilot a reality!

I moved to Canada to pursue my dream of becoming a Commercial Pilot. I obtained my Commercial Pilot Licence from Pakistan which I converted to Canadian Commercial Licence, summer of 2011. I then completed my Flight Instructor Rating here at the Brampton Flight Centre in February 2012.

I am available during club hours 7 days a week.

Despite coming from an aviation family, I took the long way to get where I am. After university and living abroad for some time, I became a flight attendant with a major Canadian carrier.  However, I still felt like something was missing, and after an introductory flight, I was sold on flying. I completed my instructor rating at BFC and have been working here ever since.

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.

As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by all things flight – I still look up towards the sky every time an aircraft flies over. After finishing my undergraduate degree in Life Sciences, I decided to pursue aviation professionally and it’s provided me with the greatest memories thus far. Hopefully I can help you realize your dreams, recreationally or professionally.

After completing my Financial Economics degree, I found myself in an accounting career where I quickly realized that it wasn’t for me. I have always had an interest in aviation and flying, and figured that it was time for a career change. I decided to obtain my licenses and ratings and went on to complete my Flight Instructor Rating right here at BFC! 
No matter what your goals are, whether you just want to fly for fun or pursuing a career in aviation, I would be more than happy to help you realize your dreams and share this fun and amazing journey with you!

I got the aviation bug after being handed a ground school text at 11years old. Read it cover to cover. I love the systems, the people, and most of all the office view. After a career in engineering, I look forward to serve your flying needs through prompt and concise feedback, attention to detail, and most of all, a focus on your safety as you progress throughout your training.

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 my 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.
