About Flight Experience Licenses Education Miscellaneous


I’m a freelance pilot and aviation consultant. I have experience in many types of aircraft and in most areas of the world. More importantly, I'm professional and have a strong focus on safety, reliability and customer satisfaction.

In addition to flying I provide aviation consulting, aircraft purchase and export, and aviation software.

Flight Experience:

I currently have about 3,000 hours total flight time. I have flown many aircraft types including single-engine, multi-engine, tailwheel, large aircraft, and glass cockpit aircraft. My flight experience includes 2-pilot flight crew, extensive international experience and North Atlantic crossings. I meet insurance companies' experience requirements for single-engine and multi-engine trans-Atlantic ferry flights.

Safety and reliability are always my first concern. I have no incidents, accidents or violations of any kind.
