Kyle has been flying ever since he could reach the pedals. He earned his pilot’s license 2½ years ago — 17 is the minimum age — and has gone on to earn certifications for instrument rated flying, commercial aviation and now flight instruction. After being around airplanes so much, he just fell in love with flying and has always wanted to teach other people to fly. His approach to teaching is reflected in his quote: “It’s important to know when to teach and when to turn the plane over to the student and let them do it themselves."His passion for flying is only matched by his enthusiasm for skiing and surfing.
