Flight School

It’s that diversity of thought and opinion that allows us to better challenge the norm, identify creative solutions and become stronger thought leaders.

Instructor: Steve Turner

I obtained my CFI certificate in 2002. I began independent instruction at the Knox County Flying Club, the same club where I obtained my private pilot license. I continued there but in 2005 was invited to fly for PIA by the owner, Kevin Waters, who had been the instructor signing me off for my second cross country solo flight as a student pilot years before. My instruction continued but only part time as I was full time at PIA. While still instructing at the club I became a line instructor at PIA and eventually a check airman.  Today,  I enjoy the best of both worlds: working with professionals and students!

Instructor: Alex Garmon

Alex graduated from Northwest College’s Aeronautics program in Powell, Wyoming in 2020. After that, he then spent a year instructing in Montana before moving to Tennessee and instructing there. He is excited to be moving to Maine with his wife, their two dogs, two cats, a rabbit and horse!
