About Rome

Updated on: 03/27/2024

Hello! I’m a Professional Pilot offering professional flight instruction to aircraft owners or to those that have access to an airplane. I specialize in accelerated Instrument Training where you can complete it in 9 days! This type of training requires a lot of hard work and commitment, but the reward is well worth the investment. But if you just need a Flight Review or maybe an IPC, I offer that service as well.

As a Gold Seal Flight Instructor, I tailor the training to each individual student. Additionally, I offer the convenience of traveling to you. And as a Professional Pilot, I understand that “time is money” so when you decide to schedule your training with me, I will dedicate and commit myself to completing your training.

If you are looking for a Flight Instructor that is easy to work with and has a ton of flight instruction experience, then please feel free to reach out to me and let’s talk.

Thank you for your consideration.
