Need Aircraft Insurance?
Check with Aaron Flora of
Insurance. Both he
are accomplished aviators. Dennis is an A36TC owner and pilot
examiner in the Philadelphia area and Aaron is an accomplished corporate pilot/CFII/MEII
(he trained me for my Commercial ME and ATP ratings).
They have worked to get
quotes for me from several underwriters each year to get me the best rate.
E-Mail for a Quote
or call (727) 243-4094 and tell him you're a "Beech
Buddy" of Mike.
Aaron, based in the Tampa,
Florida area, may also be available for CFII or MEII Dual in your Bonanza or Baron. I
enthusiastically recommend him, he is an awesome aviator and instructor. Call
him directly for his availability and rates.
Another accomplished aviator
and awesome CFII/MEII is David Austin in the Dallas, TX area.
Dave is also an
A&P with IA authority and very knowledgeable in the Beechcraft airframes and
systems (I trust him with my bird)! Talk about a combination of pilot and
mechanic in one package!
Dave gave me brush-up training for my ATP-MEL ride and
has prepared another friend of mine for his Commercial MEL in my B55. On occasion, subject to time availability, Dave can fly
to your airport to render maintenance assistance, a Hangar Call!
Dave also does extensive RV maintenance and test flights.
Contact him directly at 214-236-7973 for his rates and availability and tell him
you're a "Beech Buddy" of Mike!
7/28/2021 NEWS FLASH: Dave is now a DPE!
Also in the Dallas, TX area is
a great CFII Todd Whiteley. He can be reached at: 817-808-7225

In Central New York, my first CFI, Jeff Vandeyacht, took me from my PPL to
Instrument rating in my Beech Sierra.

He's a great "stick" and can get you
squared away in most anything you fly.
Jeff is a CFII/MEI working in the Syracuse,
KSYR and Oswego
KFZY area of
New York. See his site HERE
and be sure to have him take you to the
BBQ after your BFR or IPC to celebrate, which has to be one of the top BBQ
joints in the country!
I took my Instrument ride with Lon Sauter (RIP) out of
KFZY. He gave
me a very fair ride.
Lon and his wife Marge run "The Flight School" at
KFZY and Lon is
also an A&P w/IA privledges.
I had a fair and great ATP check ride experience with Kendall Haley, based at
KDTO. If you need to schedule a check ride, give Kendall a call: (214) 534-8067
Another fair and great examiner that I have used on the Gulf Coast of Florida is
Walt Bradshaw, based
for all his contact info.
Last but not least, is David Garner in the Tampa, Florida area: (813) 245-1161.
I took my multi-engine ride with him in a Travel Air. I received a very fair
ride with him but I don't think he believed me when I told him I was going to
buy a Baron someday. I guess he hears that from a lot of people....LOL
