HISTORY
For the past 40 years I have watched many people die needlessly in private airplanes because of the lack of recurrent training. It almost happened to me. I was coming out of the short airstrip in southern Florida on a hot day with my six-year-old daughter in the copilot seat of a 421 Cessna, when the turbocharger on the right engine ceased and the engine started surging. I was caught off guard and for precious seconds did nothing, consumed with panic. Fortunately the engine still produce power and I was able to return to the airport uneventfully. That event scared me so bad that I went to a local flying school and enrolled in a recurrent multiengine course. After 4 hours of multiengine instruction, practicing every emergency imaginable, I left there feeling safer than I had felt in a long time.

SAFETY
In the last 2 years I have observed four airplane crashes that I believe were totally avoidable if the pilots had recurrent training in mountain flying and emergency procedures. Pilot error is killing way too many people in light airplanes. If you are serious about flying float planes or single-engine airplanes in the mountains and you want to be safe please take a mountain flying course either by me or one of my pilots or by someone of your own choosing. Do it annually.

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU
I am still recovering airplanes, but not the little ones anymore. If you have an airplane that is stuck in a foreign country, give me a call. If you know of someone who has been detained in a foreign country, give me a call. If you're looking to purchase an airplane and don't have a lot of experience at it, give me a call. If you have any questions regarding aviation, give me a call, if I don't have the answer for you I can find someone who does.
