General News
Welcome to the CFI Mike Webpage!
Mike has been developing and delivering training in the electronic, computer and aviation industries for over 30 years.  The natural extension of that technical experience is developing and providing the finest training in advanced aircraft and avionic systems.

Mike has experience in both single-engine, multi-engine aircraft, and gliders.  At one time he planned and studied to become a meteorologist.  Along with the glider flying, this has refined his knowledge of the air around us.  This allows him a unique perspective in helping you understand the interaction of the aircraft and the atmosphere.

Mike is a Cirrus factory trained transition instructor (CSIP).  This means you will get the most up-to-date information from Cirrus and UND aerospace for your Cirrus training.

Other advanced avionics training include the Garmin (UPS) MX20 multi-function display and CXN80 IFR approved Comm/GPS/VOR.   He is familiar with most IFR certified GPS approach systems and can help you develop the skills to really feel comfortable with your advanced equipment.

Please check with your insurance company about their requirements for instructor experience.  In most cases Mike will meet all the requirements for the open pilot or instructor clauses in your policy.  Current flight resume numbers are available on request.
