Drone and Airplane Pilot, Flight Instructor
Hi, I'm Greg or Professor R as my students call me.
I have been an aviation professional since the early 2000s. I currently hold the following FAA certificates: Certified Flight Instructor, Commercial Pilot (for single and multi engine), and UAS Remote Pilot. I have worked for two of the biggest aeronautical universities in the country (managing flight training programs of up to 500 students and 50 aircraft) and in teaching roles as an adjunct professor. I now concentrate on educating the next generation of manned and unmanned pilots by creating online courses.
I truly enjoy teaching both in the classroom and online as well as sharing my knowledge using newer technology. I intend to help bridge the gap between the manned and unmanned aircraft industry to increase safety.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Aeronautical Science and a Masters Degree in Aviation Human Factors, both from the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL.
When I am not teaching, you can find me running in the beautiful mountains surrounding Prescott, AZ.
This course provides a detailed roadmap you can use to set up your own NIST lanes. We explain the purpose of NIST, what all of the maneuvers are, and how to score each attempt.
Each NIST participant can get their own account so they can see the maneuvers explained ahead of time. Our goal is for this course to have all participants on the same page ahead of the practice day. This limits confusion and saves valuable time on the field.
