Flight Training

By Martin Pauly ✈ October 31, 2020

I am a certified flight instructor (CFI) for single-engine aircraft, providing primary flight training towards your initial pilot certificate and also specializing in the following areas:

  • Cross-country flying
    You feel comfortable in the pattern and in the practice area, but the thought of flying 500 or even 1,000 miles to a fun destination is intimidating? Let me help you, either through joint flight planning and weather briefings, or let me join you on that flight and turn that long cross-country into a fun learning experience.
  • Engine management
    Wondering what all the numbers on your engine monitor are telling you? Worried about damaging your high-performance engine by mismanaging it? I can help you. As a graduate of the APS Masters class, I have a solid understanding of aircraft piston engine operation and mixture management. And I can explain to you, in meaningful terms, in your airplane. See my LOP video as an example of what you can learn from me.
  • Mastering busy airspace and large airports
    Depending on where you trained and where you have flown, the thought of flying in busy airspace may be intimidating. Let me help you take the fear out of this, and turn it into a rewarding flight. If you’d like to experience the view of the Chicago skyline from over the lake shore, or land at ATL, the world’s busiest airport? I can help you with all of the above, and make it a fun experience.
  • Bonanza transition training
    Are you new to the Bonanza? Does your insurance require transition training? With over a 1,000 hours in the Bonanza, I know what’s important and how to help you master your new airplane.
  • Coming soon: Instrument flight training
    I am currently training to become a CFII (instrument flight instructor)
