Growing up around an airport and watching plane after plane fly in a out, it peaked my interest in aviation.  Although my early education pursuits took me down a different path in my career, I decided I could not ignore aviation any longer.  I completed my flight training program at Brampton Flight Centre and dedicated myself to becoming a flight instructor.  I take pride as a flight instructor by offering a training experience that is always fun, safe, efficient, and extremely rewarding.  I’m available 7 days a week to help my students achieve their dreams of flight!

Teaches: All Licences
For as long as I can remember, Superman was my favorite superhero, not because of his feats, but his ability to fly! Going at a hundred knots in these aircrafts is the closest I could ever get to that. Some of my earliest memories are taking walks along the air force bases and hangers in Bangladesh and UAE with my father. My four year old brain could not comprehend the machines that stood like skyscrapers in front of me. I am an Aviation Ops graduate from Seneca College and achieved all the necessary Aviation licenses. I have also been trained by numerous professionals, such as Airline pilots, Bush pilots and an Ex-Air Force pilot. I am confident that my experiences has given me all the skills needed to share and pass on my passion for flying to my students, in a safe and pleasant manner.

Class IV Instructor
Teaches: All LicencesI 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.

I developed a passion for aviation when i was very young; enamoured by all things that fly, with the goal of one day becoming a commercial pilot. I began flight training in 2015, and obtained my PPL and CPL while completing an undergraduate degree in Physics. Seeing people enter into the world of flying, enjoy themselves and achieve their goals is something that has always brought me joy, and is one of the reasons I became a flight instructor. I aim to inspire new pilots and help them make their flying dreams a reality.

My favorite catch phrase….. It doesn’t matter how many hours you have, the most important hour is the next one!

Teaches: All Licences 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.
