Ryan is originally from Encinitas. Before flight training, he graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering. He took a discovery flight and got hooked on flying, knowing almost immediately this is what he wanted to do. Ryan completed all of his training right here at Pinnacle. When not flying, Ryan enjoys playing at the beach in the summer, skiing in the winter, golfing, and just spending time outdoors. He hopes to share his love for aviation with students and looks forward to training the next class of pilots.
