Robert Phillips: Airline Transport Pilot, Instrument, Multiengine rated, Certified Flight Instructor
I have been flying since 1991, been a commercial pilot since 1997, and have been instructing since 1999. Currently, I fly for corporate and charter operations. I am passionate for aviation and watching future certified pilots learn to fly. As a member of AOPA, EAA, NAFI and SAFE National Flight instructor organizations, I am always looking for, and learning about more efficient ways of instructing.
While holding my Flight Instructors License, I have logged over 600 hours of flight instruction. Safety is stressed in all of my flying and flight lessons. My teaching style is influenced by Scenario Based Training which is often used by aircraft manufacturers and airlines. I have found that using an aircraft in this manner allows the pilot-in-training to develop greater comfort and confidence levels, along with a deeper understanding of aircraft systems, and real world flying.
