Fred Williams - Flight Instructor

Fred soloed and bought his first airplane at the age of sixteen. Throughout high school, he worked at the Santa Paula Airport; well known for hangars full of unique aircraft and an eclectic group of pilots, personalities and enthusiasts. It provided an aviation education that few are lucky enough to experience. 

Of equal interest is Fred's love for the outdoors. His experiences include countless hikes, climbs and whitewater trips in both North and South America. While in college, Fred taught Mountain Search and Rescue classes and founded Moonstone, an outdoor clothing and equipment manufacturer that gained worldwide distribution and a reputation for quality.

One early adventure brought Fred's love of flying and the outdoors together perfectly. While still in high school, Fred strapped a backpack into a 1946 Taylorcraft, flew it to a 9,000 foot meadow in the High Sierra, then set up camp and soaked in the surrounding beauty. When the time came to leave, he tied the airplane to a tree, hand-propped it, and flew home. This business has its roots in that unforgettable experience.

Today, Fred is recognized as a Wright Brothers Masters Pilot living his dream. He finds nothing more rewarding than sharing his passion for Adventure Flying.
