Professional Piper Meridian Flight and Simulator Training

Executive Flight Training is a small flight school that I started in 1986 while I was a Captain/Check Pilot with US Airways. For the last ten years, I have specialized in Piper Malibu and Meridian flight training on a one to one basis. No large classes or training with pilots at a different experience level. I offer training to pilots that have come to the realization that a cookie cutter approach to training is not appropriate for them. Many of my clients have attended big name simulator schools only to find that highly scripted, impersonal training doesn't make them a safer pilot. As an alternative, I offer the best Piper Meridian flight or simulator training available on an accelerated, flexible, and affordable basis. I avoid the distractions or delays of a large flight school and my program is always individualized to your experience level. As an Piper PA46 instructor with over 10,000 hours of instructional experience, I avoid trivial information and emphasize safety and operational efficiency. And to be honest, no matter where you go for training, the quality of the training experience is directly related to the quality of the instructor. In fact, when the ABC News show 20/20 needed an expert on the Piper Meridian, their producer contacted me. Finally, I train at your convenience and on your schedule.

My priorities are:

  • Training safer pilots through superior instruction in their own aircraft or my simulator.
  • Conferring useful tips and techniques learned from teaching hundreds of Piper Meridian pilots.
  • Exceeding FAA or insurance requirements for initial or recurrent in the minimum amount of time.
  • Offering an economical alternative to other simulator schools without sacrificing quality.
  • Utilizing an FAA FITS accepted syllabus.

Regardless of your experience level, you will leave here a better and safer pilot than when you arrived.
