At Crosswinds Aviation we are committed to the most efficient and highest quality flight training experience possible. The way we ensure this begins with our instructors. It’s not just the plane you fly, but who you fly with that affects your experience. Through your flight training process you will spend a great deal of time with your instructor, and for this reason, we hand-select the best instructor from our team to meet your needs and personality. Your Crosswinds flight instructor will guide you from the very beginning of your first lesson, through all the lessons in your flight training syllabus, to your final check-ride with an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner; they will be your teacher and mentor throughout the entire process.
Our instructors are skilled at understanding what their student’s objectives are for achieving a pilot license. Based on this, they will incorporate specific scenarios into the structure of your flight training syllabus. Crosswinds instructors will modify flight lessons and help you obtain more experience in situations based on how you intend to use your pilot license. For example, if you are looking to become a career pilot, your instructor will focus more on efficiency of training and progressing you to the next rating as quickly as possible. If you are planning to use your license for business travel, your instructor will focus on your perspective in regards to flying and good decision making; incorporating trips into your cross-country flights that are similar to the trips and weather conditions you will likely encounter. And if you are flying for recreation, your instructor will incorporate flight training lessons to the types of destinations you plan to visit frequently.
