Marty has taught for American Flyers, Dean International, Pelican Flight training, and other local flight schools.

He got his ATP, then, starting in 1990, his CFI ,CFII, MEI, AGI, and IGI.

“I was lucky enough to have an airplane I used for business to get the time required for my ATP".

I then asked myself, ‘now what?’. That’s when I decided to try my hand at teaching. I love to teach and watch ‘the light come on.

Marty has owned several airplanes, including a Piper Archer, Piper Aztec, Cessna 414, a Beech Sierra, and the (second) love of his life, a Beechcraft Baron.

In addition to his instructor ratings, Marty also holds a private pilot helicopter ticket and a commercial pilot SEL.
