Getting Started

You think you might like to learn to fly? Get started as soon as possible! I’m sure you have a lot questions though. I’ve covered some common questions.

I usually meet with potential students prior to the start of training to get to know them and their goals, discuss the process of learning to fly, answer questions they may have, and dispel a few myths; here’s an outline for the discussion. If you are not a US citizen, there is a TSA process before you may begin flight training; if you are a US citizen, you’ll need to bring appropriate ID to your first lesson. I also request that students buy a few items prior to their first lesson.


For my first lesson, I meet students in the terminal building of the San Gabriel Valley Airport in El Monte. After the first lesson, we’ll meet at the airplane.
