Flight Instructor - Matt Thomas
- Commercial Pilot
My name is Matt Thomas, I was born and raised here in beautiful Lakeland, Florida.
I have always had a deep interest in aviation, even when I was very young.. Whether it was going to the model airplane field with friends, or being taken to the air show here in Lakeland every year by my parents, I have always loved aviation.
I started building and flying model airplanes at a young age, which really lit a spark in my life.
In middle school I was building and flying model airplanes in competitions around Florida and the SE United States.
I went to high school at the Central Florida Aerospace Academy (CFAA), and received the James C. Ray scholarship which greatly helped me pay for my sport and then private license.
I am currently enrolled in an Aviation Program offered here in Lakeland by Polk State College. I plan to one day become a corporate pilot.
I enjoying vintage airplanes and flying my 1966 Cessna 150.
