I Didn't Actually Drop Off the Face of the Earth, It Just Seemed That Way.

So, the past 23 months have been pretty crazy.  First, I'll tell you why I quit updating the blog, then I'll share what I've been so busy doing for the last 2 years.

I stopped writing for two main reasons - I met people in person who read by blog and whom I had to work with and for in real life.  This made it harder to be candid about my experiences, which took some of the fun out of it.  Second, I was just so insanely busy that I didn't really have time.  Since my last post, I've trained over a dozen students for nearly every airplane certificate the FAA offers, and earned a few myself.  I've moved, taught classes, taken on a puppy, and logged almost 2000 more hours in the air.

Because many things have changed in my life, the format here will do the same.  First - no promises of regular updates, I'll write when I have something to write about.  Second - I have changed the name, since I'm not really instructing professionally any more.  This is the blog formerly known as "My Life As A Flight Instructor."


  1. Thanks for the update. I enjoy reading your blog. Glad to see you are getting some hours in. Happy Landings!

  2. Glad to hear you're still out there! I'm planning on starting to work towards my CFI (to teach on the side, part-time) soon. One of these days I'll have to hit you up for a short chat about all that.

  3. Flying is really an awesome work. It gives joy, calm and most important inner peace….
