It begins with a dream

That’s how it started for me. Before my time in the Army or Sheriff’s Department, I had always wanted to be a pilot. But that opportunity never came. I was 55 when it finally did, and I haven’t looked back. It’s never too late! In one year I became rated for Rotorcraft and Fixed Wing.

That’s why I founded Rebel Blade Aviation, to share the freedom of flight with other aspiring pilots. I’ve created a program that allows you to learn at your own pace and crush the licensing exams when you’re ready.

See you in the sky,
