IAN

RAAUS Senior Instructor

Experience:
Flying since 2011

Certifications:
RAAUS Senior Instructor, GA Grade 1 Instructor, Head of Operations (HOO), Air Traffic Control Licence, CPL (A), MECIR, Bachelor of Technology (Aviation) 

Why I like flying:
The freedom of flying is unbeatable. If you're willing to put in the effort, there is almost nothing in aviation you can't achieve. You get an office with the best view in the world and a different challenge every time you fly. The only flying moment I remember more fondly than my own first solo was the first time I got to send a student up on their very first solo!

JOHN

Why I like flying:
I love flying becuase it makes me experience this out of body experience that I know I want again and again even till today. Since I was young (age 4) I thought I could fly, but not until 2013 I decided to take up flying lessons and got my pilot licence. Now a Foxbat A22LS pro, I've decided to get my own Foxbat one day! 

NATHAN

Why I like flying:
I love the personal challenge that comes with teaching and learning flying as a skill, not to mention the view from the office! On top of that, it is hard to beat the feeling you get when your students succeed. Whether it be as simple as seeing basic sequences come together or sharing their excitement as they take off on their first solo, the thrill doesn’t go away.

Flying miles above the earths surface is one of the best feelings you could experience. Especially when you are in control of the aircraft! The freedom of flying is unstoppable and nothing can compare to it. Since I was young, I knew flying was my passion . My office is the sky, the view changes everyday and it never gets old.
