Why did you start flying?
My dad took me flying in a Cessna out of Skyways in Langley when I was 4, and I was hooked! He learned to fly through Air Cadets, so when I was old enough I joined 767 Dearman Squadron in my hometown of Surrey. Glider and Power summer camps were easily some of the best summers of my life!
What airplane did you learn to fly in?
SGS 2-33A/Cessna 150
What airplane do you fly now?
CT-156 Harvard II
What is your favorite kind of flying or place to fly to?
Aerobatics! While most of my flying has been either around the patch as an ultralight instructor or long cross countries, it’s the aerobatics that I long for. Vertical aerobatics with a 5G entry are the most challenging, and I love to be challenged.
