In order to fly aircraft, one has to be licensed. Private Pilot, Sport Pilot or Recreational Pilot are licenses that allow operation of an aircraft in a private manner. For people that want a career in flying, there're Commercial Pilot and Airline Transport Pilot Licenses. Feel free to contact me for help with obtaining any of these licenses. I can also help with planning and strategizing your training including financial planning and accelerated training.
If you're already licensed, you can learn new skills or sharpen already existing ones. You can get your Instrument Rating and fly in low or none existent visibility. You can also fly through a layer of clouds sitting over an airport or all the way to your destination through clouds. Tailwheel, High Performance, Complex, Aerobatic and High Altitude are some of the advance training you can get.
Opportunities for adventure in flying are endless. There are multiple organizations in the Bay Area that plan trips and events for local pilots. You can also plan your own adventure with other local pilots should you desire. There are many flying clubs in the bay are and there are always members looking for new places to fly to. I find it and absolute blessing to be based in the Bay Area given that I fly. Some of the most breath taking places on earth are easily accessible from here. Yellow Stone, Yosemite National Parks, Grand Canyon, and the whole western seaboard of this continent from Mexico to Alaska can be explored with light aircraft. Feel free to contact me should you want to plan a trip.
There're two ways of going about purchasing an aircraft. You can buy one on your own or share ownership with other pilots. Both ways have benefits and drawbacks. you can make your aircraft available to local flying clubs if you wish and have it generate revenue. I have over nine years of experience working in aircraft maintenance industry. I have assisted clients in purchasing and manageing aircraft and I can assist y0u as well.
