Claudia Maciel-Contreras

Hi, my name is Claudia and I appreciate this opportunity to introduce myself. I’ve enjoyed instructing for several years now and have developed my own personal style of instruction which focuses on adding “fun” into learning. While I do follow a training syllabus in order to make sure that all areas of aeronautical knowledge and flight training are covered, I consider it equally important that students get a good exposure to the real-world aspects of flying _ the type of “street knowledge” not found in text books, but gained only through experience.

I teach all levels of pilots, in single and multi-engine aircraft, from students seeking their Private Pilot license all the way through Flight Instructor.

I have dedicated my career to teaching others to fly. Your training will be a combination of flight training and ground instruction focusing on the FAA requirements, so that you are able to realize your goal as efficiently as possible. Since, I am a full-time instructor; I can be available to accommodate your schedule. When we are finished, you will be a safe and confident pilot.

In addition to primary training, I can take you further in your flying goals with an instrument rating, a multi-engine rating, a Commercial license, or an Airline Transport Pilot rating. I also prepare pilots to fly in challenging environments such as mountain flying, high-altitude and complex / high performance aircraft.

So whether you want to take your first flight, continue your flight training, or tune-up unused skills, contact me and we will take that first flight together. I am passionate about flying and I want you to be too.

Picking an instructor who is right for you is probably the most important decision you will make, as it will weigh heavily in determining the success you have in acheiving your goal. I look forward to being able to sit down and talk with you one-on-one, or perhaps spend a few minutes on the phone if that’s more convenient. Either way, I’d like to do whatever I can to help you get off to the best start possible.
