Andy’s passion for being in the air began the moment he was able to make a parachute jump – his 18th birthday. More than 500 jumps later he became a father and chose to retire from that sport. Andy earned his private pilots license at Pinnacle in 2014 and holds CFI, CFII and MEI instructor certificates. He is originally from England and has made Carlsbad his home for more than 20 years. Andy is passionate about flying, sharing aviation with others, traveling, spending time with his 8 year old daughter and taking her skiing.
