Originally from Illinois, Matt’s passion for aviation began at the age of six when he had the opportunity to fly a B737 Flight Simulator. After graduating from Northern Illinois University, Matt earned his ratings from a flight school in Chicago and later moved to Arizona in 2019.
After a few months of working at a local Part 141 Flight School as a flight instructor, Matt took on the role as a Training Manager, which allowed him to utilize his experience to help struggling students get back on track. While he enjoyed working with international students, the opportunity to join Sierra Charlie presented itself and he hopes to bring his passion for and experience with aviation to SCA. Matt has since then worked hard taking care of his students turning student pilots into aviators. He has helped to create and maintain one of the most successful multi-engine programs in the country here at Sierra Charlie!
