Doug Frix (CFI, CFII, MEI) – 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 has passed their required tests and become pilots, commercial pilots, and/or instructors.
The following instructors are fantastic, but they have full time jobs and work on a part time basis. They must be contacted directly. You can find their contact information on our aircraftclubs.com scheduling program.
Scott Lewis (CFI) – Flight Instructor
Scott’s first flight was January 10, 1990, and he’s loved flying ever since. After completing his commercial and instrument rating in July of 1993, Scott took some time off from flying when his kids were born. Two years ago Scott visited Aerotech Aviation and knew Doug was the right instructor to help him complete his CFI training. After a year of training, Scott completed his CFI check ride in March of 2019. Still wanting to continue training, Scott trained with Doug as his instructor and completed his multi engine rating in October of 2019. Scott loves flying and only turns down a chance to go flying if his daughters already have something planned for him.
