I was a Naval Aviator and instructed in tactical jets, also on US Air Force exchange duty teaching Iranian and Turkish pilots. Instructed in the ailine industy too and since retiring from American Airlines I have instructed in classrooms and 5 different aircraft simulators.
I love teaching and relating life's experiences into the lessons. When I teach ground school and simulator sessions I include accidents and the lessons learned from them. I also ask many what, why and how questions to get the students to think about the topic being discussed.
