Jean-Paul, grew up in the Netherlands. He always had a special affinity for the aviation industry. He studied aviation technology on top of having a teaching degree in mechanical engineering, what is a strong asset in the pilot training industry. He started flying gliders right here in sunny California back in 2007, eventually moving on to powered aircraft in 2010. Trained in Van Nuys, Santa Monica, Camarillo and Scottsdale, AZ.
His qualifications and personal strengths are serving him well in his role as an instructor. As a dad his people-centric nature, forward thinking and compassionate engagement will inspire and influence Pinnacle students to become the most knowledgable and safest pilots out there.
