I feel that I am contributing to the local community and making a difference in people's lives while working in a dynamic, fair and flexible environment."
John's interests have always included Aviation. "I always believed learning to fly is one of the most challenging but rewarding experiences you can ever have. Many people have dreams of learning to fly, but are not sure how to achieve them. I am so excited to now help others achieve their aviation goals. Now with a flight school, I can share my passion for aviation with others on a professional level."
