I’m a professional contract pilot available for aircraft deliveries, ferry flights and flight training. I also provide safety pilot or copilot services on a per-day basis.
In addition to flying I provide aviation consulting and aviation software.
Atlantic ferry flights:
I am available as ferry pilot / safety pilot for Atlantic ferry flights to Europe, the Middle East or beyond. I can provide all necessary services for safe and expedient North-Atlantic ferry flights, including ferry tank installation, required survival gear and ferry flight insurance.
Buying an aircraft in the USA for export:
If you wish to buy an airplane in the USA for export, I can represent you in the purchase process. I can assist with aircraft selection, pre-purchase inspection, export requirements such as Export C of A and of course the ferry flight “home”.
If you are buying an airplane in the US for export, I can manage the completion of any upgrades that may be desired or required, such as installation of TKS anti-icing, retrofit of Garmin G500 glass cockpit, installation of DME, mode-S transponder, etc.
I have developed several aviation software applications, including weight and balance for Boeing B727 and B757. I have experience with many current technologies, including real-time, database-driven web applications.
I have nearly 20 years of aviation experience including flight experience in large aircraft, glass cockpits, 2-pilot flight crew, current simulator training, extensive international experience and North Atlantic crossings. I am a licensed flight instructor (CFII/MEI) who enjoys teaching.
I am also a licensed A&P mechanic with inspection authorization (IA). I have experience with many types of aircraft and engines, from radial engines to the latest GE jet engines.
I hold a dual degree in Business Administration and Computer Information Systems from NC Wesleyan College.
