About Doug

Doug CarmodyFor over twenty years, I worked for a global airline. I started as a Flight Engineer, moved to First Officer, was promoted to Captain and then became a 737 Instructor. That's where I gained most of my experience, but, even while flying for US Airways, I instructed on my days off. For two decades I balanced flying for the airlines with teaching students. In 2005, I took an early retirement from US Airways and transitioned into flight training full time. In addition to flying, I'm the author of 15 aviation training books including "The Contract Pilot's Handbook" and the King Air Training Workbooks series.

My credentials include the following:

  • 30 years of instructional experience in turbine aircraft
  • FAA Pilot Proficiency Examiner
  • Over 30,000 hours total time, with 10,000 hours as a Captain with US Airways
  • Licensed A & P Mechanic
  • Licensed in Single and Multi-engine airplanes as an ATP, CFI, CFII-MEI
  • Type ratings include Airbus A319/320/321, Beechcraft BE-300, Boeing 767/757/737, DC-9, Fokker F100/F28, EMB-110, CE500 and the CE525
  • FAA Lead FAAST Team Safety Counselor for the SC/NC area
  • FAA "Gold Seal" award winner, named Master CFI by the National Association of Flight Instructors
  • I have been a subject matter expert on ABC's 20/20, Fox's Laura Ingram Show, "Mornings on the Mall" hosted by Brian Wilson and Larry O'Connor show in Washington, DC, and for the Boston Globe.
