Student Pilot Johnny Piper

 

 

Upcoming Instructor

My name is Travois, I currently hold a FAA Commercial AMEL, ASEL with an Instrument rating.  I am also hold an aircraft mechanic certificate which I obtained through my military background.  I am currently training for my instructor certificates with Volunteer Aviation.  I started flight training with Volunteer Aviation while I was still in the army.  Although it has taken longer to train for the certificates than I intended to, the great flight instruction that I have received and the deals offered at Volunteer Aviation are worth the wait.  Upon completion of my instructor certificates I would like to instruct at Outlaw part time while finishing my BS with ERAU.  I also hope to use these licenses to rejoin the service as a commissioned officer pilot in the U. S. Navy.

Student Pilot Testimonials

 

 

Shown on left: former student pilot Jennifer Maison after her first solo flight losing her shirttails.

A tradition in aviation requires that after a fledgling aviator solos for the first time the flight instructor take a pair of scissors to the student pilot's clothing and cut off the shirttails. No one is certain how this tradition started, but one story is this...

Early instructors sat behind the student in tandem, open-cockpit airplanes. Because this was well before headsets and intercoms, the instructor might have reached forward and tugged on his shirttail to get his attention. Removing the shirttail symbolized that the soloed student no longer needed that help.
