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. As a Flight Instructor, I now look forward to helping others realize their dream. A few other things I enjoy are golfing, downhill skiing, and scuba diving.

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!

Class IV Instructor
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.
