My Journey From Teacher to Aviator
You might be wondering how I went from a science teacher to a flight instructor. Well, it's a fascinating journey, and it all started with a spark - a love for flying that I just couldn't ignore.
2012 - 2018: My Teaching Years
For 6 exciting years, I was the guy explaining atoms, reactions, and the wonders of science to bright-eyed students. Those were fun times, but I started to feel a tug towards something new.
2018 - 2020: Taking Off
I took the plunge and dived headfirst into aviation. Part 141 Flight school, certifications, the works! And you know what? I loved every single minute of it. Teaching people to fly became my new love.
2020 - 2022: Grounded by COVID
The world changed, and the aviation industry took a hit. No more flight instructor jobs, so I returned to teaching science. It was a twist I never saw coming, but I embraced the challenge.
2022 - Now: Up in the Air
When the skies opened up again, I was ready. Back to flight instruction, back to what I love, with even more passion and gratitude. From that moment, I knew I found my place. I've been sharing the sky with student pilots, helping them reach their dreams, and learning something new every day. And the best part? I'm having the time of my life doing it.
