I am a multi-engine instrument rated private pilot. I usually fly out of Montgomery Field (MYF) in San Diego, CA. I can be found somewhere in the skies over the southwest US each weekend. In particular I like flying to Mexico, Mammoth, and Las Vegas. I like to take pictures of my flights and have gathered quite a collection already. You can check them out in the flying section of my photo gallery.
Accomplishments to date:

I am working on my commercial and flight instructor certificates and have nearly a thousand hours of total flying time.
People often ask my why I'm not an airline pilot by now since I certainly could be. Airline flying is the only kind of flying the average person has exposure to. There is a lot more to flying than being an airline pilot. I'll never be a pilot for a major or even regional airline. Here's why.
