Course Description

2008 National CFI of the Year

Max Trescott

Hi folks, it's me Max Trescott. Nice to have you here! I've been flying for over 40 years, and for the last ten years have specialized in teaching people how to fly glass cockpit aircraft. Somehow, I ended up becoming the 2008 National CFI of the Year, representing the 96,000 CFIs in the U.S. Perhaps because nothing gives me more pleasure than teaching others to fly well! I hope your goal in flying is Mastery of your aircraft. It really pays to be an expert in things that can kill you! Here are some ways you can benefit from my over 40 years of experience. In addition to taking one of these courses, consider:Buying my G1000 Glass Cockpit Handbook. Keep it in the cockpit, and use the index to quickly find any detail about the G1000.Listen to the podcast.Listen to my new podcast.
