Hello, my name is Michael. I am a flight instructor and a software developer. All my life, I have been interested in airplanes and technology.
When I was 10 years old, I taught my self some basic coding skills. I later became skilled enough to perform freelance development work while I was in high school.
I started to learn how to fly when I was 16. I became a private pilot just a little bit after I turned 17. After many hours of study and work, I became a flight instructor when I was 19 years old.
Other than software and aviation, I plan on starting my own business while I am in college. I was born with an entrepreneurship spirit, and I want to apply my skills in aviation and software to one day create businesses to benefit the aviation community.
My long term goal is to be in business and investing while flying for corporate or working as a designated pilot examiner.
I am currently a certified flight instructor. I have been flying airplanes for over 3 years (since I was 16 years old).
I have a huge passion for aviation and for teaching!
I own a Mooney M20E with my dad, and I fly as often as possible. I am currently working on becoming an instrument instructor.
I have a hard time deciding between my favorite trips. I loved flying from Texas to Florida, to Wisconsin, to Illinois, and to Colorado. If I had to choose, I will have to go with Oshkosh, Wisconsin. In the summer of 2018, my dad and I flew our Mooney to the Oshkosh airshow, and we camped for 8 days next to the plane. This trip was exciting because we were able to visit grandparents along the way, and we encountered plenty of instrument conditions. I plan on going again in 2019.
I offer flight and ground instruction. I run a flight school out of Hicks airport just North of Fort Worth. I am willing to come to you if you fly out of your airport. I live in Fort Worth, Texas, and I fly out of Hicks airfield.
I am very passionate about planes, but I am even more so about teaching others how to fly. I love to instruct, and I would love to be the one to teach you how to fly.
I have always been fascinated with how computers work. I fed my fascination by teaching myself how to write small programs when I was 10 years old. Now I have three years of experience with Java, and I am familiar with many other languages.
If there is ever something which I do over and over again, I find a way to write a program to do it for me.
Most of my years developing have been creating plugins for Spigot users and large Minecraft servers. My primary focus has been backed, networking, and databases. I have been using MySQL for two years. Most of my work has been freelance.
One of my best projects is EasyBackup. It was one of the easiest ones to create, and it took much less time than others, but I had an idea for a plugin which protects people's servers via EasyBackup, and it has taken the community by storm.
I am currently going to school for computer science, but it is more for personal use or as a backup if aviation does not work out.
