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 Master's Degree in Aviation Human Factors, both from the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, FL.
I now concentrate on educating the next generation of manned and unmanned pilots by creating online courses via Pilot Institute.
