We are excited to have Noah help out part-time when needed.  Noah is a recent graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and a Commercial multi-engine rated pilot presently flying the Pilatus PC-12 for Plane Sense..   Noah earned his CFI-Airplane certificate with us, so he fits well with our philosophy of providing the most thorough, professional, and personal flight training to each of our students.  We’ve also improved our procedures and methods based on Noah’s experience and training at ERAU.
