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!

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!

Class IV Instructor

Teaches: All Licences
My path to the world of aviation hasn’t exactly been a straight line.  It was born in high school, where a shy, awkward, long haired Olivier listening to Aqua on his yellow Discman used to fly with a licenced friend on weekends.  Instead of pursuing flying, I instead chose to acquire a degree in Film Studies.  I spent 13 years working in film and the events marketing industry.  No matter the experiences I had doing that, it simply did not compare to the feeling I got when flying. I then made the decision to leap straight into the deep end, switched careers, and am a proud graduate of the Integrated Airline Transport Pilot Licence program here at BFC.  I am also a very fortunate but bashful recipient of the Jazz Aviation Pathway Award for Professionalism.  I have a deep passion for teaching, and becoming a Flight Instructor felt like a natural progression for me.  So let’s go flying together and become better, safer pilots!  I’ll supply the Discman.

I got into flying quite young and have never dreamed to be anything else besides a pilot. I’ve been hooked ever since I took my first intro flight at 15! Whether it be for fun, for a career or anything in between flying is a passion we all share and it gives me great pleasure to be able to share this passion through instructing at BFC. I look forward to starting or continuing your aviation dreams!

Teaches: All Licences
Having grown up with family in both Europe and Asia, I flew thousands of miles from a very young age to visit relatives and consequently became mesmerized by the wonders of flight. So, after completing a business undergraduate degree, I decided to pursue a career in aviation by joining Brampton’s IATPL program. Now as a flight instructor I can combine my passion for flying with my passion for teaching and working with people that I gained from coaching tennis for many years. Whether you want to fly for fun or want to fly as a career, I would love to be part of your journey. I am available 7 days a week.

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. 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 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!

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.

Despite coming from an aviation family, I took the long way to get where I am. After an International Business degree at Carleton 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. In order to complete my training efficiently, I left for the Florida sunshine in 2019. Working at BFC was always the dream so after converting my American license, I started my flight instructor rating at BFC in 2020, to be later brought on in 2021.

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.

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.

After my uncle told me that flying was the best job in the world as a child, what else could I do but try it out? Following my intro flight at BFC when I was 16, I applied for a dispatch position here so I could be as close to flying as possible. I attained my licenses and ratings at Seneca College and my flight instructor rating here at BFC. I look forward to providing you a fun, safe, informative and highly rewarding training environment from your first flight, to your first solo, to when I shake your hand after you show me your new pilot’s license. Please allow me to help you along the path to your aviation career!

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.
