About Us? This is Really More About You!
We think of ourselves as more than a little flight school. Sure, we're here to help you gain new skills and knowledge. But more than that, we're on a mission to make flight training with us an adventure you'll long remember.
Fred Williams - CFI
Fred soloed and owned his first aircraft at sixteen. At eighteen, he strapped his backpack into a '46 Taylorcraft and flew it to a meadow in the shadow of Mt Whitney for a weekend of hiking. When it was time to break camp, he tied the plane to a tree, hand-propped it, and flew home. Thus began a lifetime of adventure.
Later, at college, Fred taught a Mountain Rescue course and founded Moonstone, a brand of outdoor equipment and apparel that grew to worldwide distribution. Now, after forty plus years of outdoor and aviation experience, Fred is delighted to share the adventure of flying with both novices and the experienced aviators alike.
