Bill’s interest in aviation began with listening to his father’s stories of flying as a radar navigator for the Navy. After a flight with his high school science teacher, he realized that aviation is something that people can enjoy outside of their full time occupation. He earned his Private Pilot license in college for his personal enjoyment. Years later, when his son became involved with Civil Air Patrol, he decided to become an instructor as well.

Bill has over 1200 hours as pilot in command, and his goal is to teach his students to be the best and safest pilots they can be. He loves to share the joy of flying and to see his students build new skills. Bill believes there is something new to learn on every flight.
