I know what you want. I know what you need.
You want CONFIDENCE in your knowledge about your aircraft.
You want all the information you need to pass an FAA oral, or similar JAA exam, or company test. You want all the details, and not a lot of trivia. You want essential data. You want to know where something is when you need to find it. You don't want clutter about stuff you really don't need to know.
You want customer service.
You want what you want, when you want it, and none of the stuff that doesn't matter. And you want it to be easy. That's my goal – spoon feed you in the best way you've ever experienced to learn an airplane. I use a unique presentation that is very simple to use and yet all related data is interconnected.
I know what you don't want.
You don't want to have to learn how to use a computer program just to begin to learn your aircraft.
You don't want my company to hide behind an internet wall of voice mail, email, and FAQ's that don't solve your problem. If you have an issue, you want help now.
Therefore, my cell phone number is (US) 540.850.3915 . You can text me at that number. You can email my phone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am here to help you as best as I can. I offer a lifetime of free revisions and free updates so you can refresh for any future simulator. My primary goal is helping you, not taking your money.
I was born in a small town, Celina, in northwest Ohio.
I graduated from the United States Air Force Academy (1977).
Pilot Training was at Williams AFB at Phoenix, AZ. I was fighter qualified.
I spent six years flying as a Forward Air Controller in the O-2A Skymaster, OV-10 Bronco, OA-37B Dragonfly, and as a liaison helo-FAC with the Army in the OH-58C Kiowa and AH-1 Cobra.
Then I had six years flying the F-111D Tactical Fighter nuclear operations (glass cockpit), and the EF-111A Raven electronic warfare operations in NATO. I was a Liaison in Naples, It between USAFE and other air forces.
Along the way I graduated from the USC/USAF Safety School, then located at Norton AFB near San Bernardino, CA in 1986. I am a Certified Aircraft Accident Investigator.
I joined US Airways in 1989 as a Fokker F-28 First Officer @ GSO and furloughed 1991.
During the furlough (7 years long), I worked in the company computer center, then US Airways' Safety Department, and then was the second Airbus instructor when the airline took delivery of A320's in 1998 (Typed).
I was recalled to fly Boeing B737-200 (Typed) in the Metrojet operation in 1999. Within a year I moved to Boeing B757 and Boeing B767 (Typed) international operations @ PHL. Post 9-11 I was displaced to Airbus A320 (Typed) operations @ DCA in 2002, and furloughed again.
I acquired a Boeing B747 100/200/300 Classic Type Rating in 2003.
Spirit Airlines hired me as Director of Flight Safety as they began A320 certification in 2004. I have also been flying the line regularly, since 2006.
I continued my safety education and became a Licensed Safety Professional through the National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP) in 2007. This concerns safety related to all things Occupational Health and Safety (OSHA).
I am a Christian, Mason, member of various aviation and safety organizations, and social web venues like Facebook and Linkedin.
I am married to my best friend, Tracy. We raise foster kids.
