About JJ


Flying has always been a part of my family. My grandfather was a private pilot and my father has been flying for over 50 years, including more than 20 years as a captain for American Airlines. My flying career began in North Carolina, where I was born and raised. However, it was right here at Santa Monica Flyers that I finished my private pilot training. 

I couldn’t have asked for a better place to continue my training or to now work at than Santa Monica Flyers. I enjoy every single day that I get to fly around Los Angeles and Southern California. My goal is to ultimately make it to the airlines one day. But, for now, I am happy to have the opportunity to instruct future pilots!
