Flight Instruction

Flight Instructor Michael Phillips

I love the picture at the top of this page not only because it captures the beauty of aviation but also the soul of an airport and the beauty of nature.

But more importantly I wanted to pay tribute to the person in the picture above (the one on the left) because he is a testament to persistence and to what anyone can accomplish if they want it badly enough. Along the way David Casarez taught me what being a flight instructor is all about and what our role as teacher and mentor really means. Teaching David to fly was a project that I will always be grateful for because it stretched me as a teacher and allowed me to develop and sharpen my skills in ways that I had not imagined. I invite you to read about our odyssey on my blog. His persistence and determination inspired and motivated me and it is my hope that his story will inspire others to never give up on their dreams. Read about David.
