World Class Pilot Training in Light Jets
Jerry is a VLJ instructor pilot and FAA Pilot Proficiency Examiner (PPE) who has been flying as a general aviation, military, and airline pilot for the past 42 years and is type rated in the Eclipse 500, the Phenom 100, and the Phenom 300. Jerry's experience is the envy of every pilot and he has accumulated over 22,000 hours of flight time. Jerry got his aviation start in the United States Air Force flying KC-135s as aircraft commander and instructor pilot. He then flew for American Airlines flying several different types of aircraft and finishing on the B-777 as an international captain. All the while, Jerry never gave up his love for general aviation and provided pilot instruction in single and multi-engine Cessnas and Pipers.

Since 2007, Jerry has concentrated his instructor talents in the Eclipse 500 and the Phenoms starting as the manager of flight training and senior check airman at DayJet. Following DayJet, Jerry took a more personal approach and has been mentoring and instructing VLJ pilots from all backgrounds at their home base for their initial jet type rating and annual recurrent training.

Jerry is truly a teacher who can find out how to make each pilot perform to his/her best and in a way that makes each pilot he flies with comfortable and relaxed. Jerry is originally from New York and enjoys boating and riding bikes at his home in Plantation Florida with his wife Susan.
