OUR FLIGHT INSTRUCTORS

Doug Frix (CFII) – Chief Flight Instructor

Doug started flying in 1986.  He flew as an airline pilot for both American Eagle and Mesa Airlines doing domestic and international trips.  He is a member of the Civil Air Patrol and has flown as a Mission Pilot and Instructor Pilot for them.  He has been teaching flying since 2007.  He left airline flying in 2012 to focus on developing a better program for teaching pilots how to fly both safely and affordably.  His training philosophy includes the motto, “if you’re not having fun, you’re not learning.”  He has taught many students who are currently professional pilots and many others who just wanted to learn for pleasure flying.  His safety record is perfect and every student who has completed his training program and passed their required tests and become pilots, commercial pilots, and instructors.
