About Your Instructors

We understand the pressures you face in the air.

We get it because we have sat next to hundreds of pilots providing expert, personalized, owner/pilot instruction since 2014 at Texas Top Aviation.

With over 8000 hours of instruction given in Technically Advanced Aircraft and over 15,000 hours in total flight time, The Aviator’s Academy instructors are qualified to fly and instruct most single-engine aircraft to a level that far exceeds what a flight school can provide.

The content for this course was developed after 3000+ hours of flight-training instruction on the Garmin Perspective/G1000.  We took the most commonly asked questions from pilots during IFR flights, built out scenarios to put them into practice, with external pressures in place, all designed to improve not only your instrument proficiency, but also your aeronautical decision-making skills.
