Brian's interest in aviation began as a youngster, but not in the fashion most experience. Brian was fascinated
with aircraft crash investigation which further lead him to discover the "why and how" aircraft take flight. Brian
took his first Discovery Flight in 1997 at the age of 17, attained his Private Pilot Certificate in 1999, and continued to
trek skyward through the advanced flight certifications and ratings. Brian currently holds several flight and ground instructor
certifications which include the following: CFI, CFII, MEI, AGI, and IGI. Brian's advice to other aspiring pilots would simply
be, "Don't give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."
Brian has been employed as a Municipal Police Officer in New Jersey since 2006, but is excited to be in a position to "pay
it forward" to both current and future pilots alike.

Flying is something I have always wanted to do since I can remember. Growing up, aircraft always amazed
me. My head was always turned skyward anytime I would hear an airplane in the distance. I started learning about flying at
about the age of 8. I would read just about anything I could get my hands on about flight and aircraft. At 10 years old I
started flying on a home simulator practicing takeoffs, landings, turns, climbs, and descents. I would sit and fly on my sim
for hours at a time just pretending I was really airborne!
My first time in a small
airplane was in October of 2010. I did an hour discovery flight and I immediately knew at 13 years old this was what I wanted.
I trained at Lincoln Park Airport for 5 years. After I graduated high school I went to Airline Transport Professionals Flight
School in Morristown, NJ for about 6 months to finish my ratings and get my MEI, CFI, and CFII certificates.
There is no better feeling than when a student comes to you for help and you are
able to help that student learn and make a difference in their life! I look forward to helping the next ones in line that
aim for the sky!
“For pilots the sky is not the limit, it’s
Good flying and smooth landings!

My first flight was with a friend and
his dad when I was in the 8th grade. We flew out of Morristown, NJ. I fell in love with flight and knew I wanted to become
a pilot. Money and time rarely share the same space for young aviators but in 1982 I started flight instruction on a grass
field in a J3 Piper Cub with the legendary Pete Billows. Kids came along and money and time grew further apart but I got my
private ticket after ten years of on and off flying. After earning my private certificate the rest came rather quickly including
instrument, commercial and flight instructor. I continued to work full time in our family business and retired in the summer
of 2015 finally getting the time to share my love of flying with others.
