New instructor in SE Michigan

I have been a lurker on this board for years, usually just eating my popcorn and watching the sparks fly. I have just completed adding my CFI gyro, (Full, not sport pilot) and I am offering my services in and around Michigan and Northern Indiana and Ohio for instruction and flight reviews in customer aircraft. I have experience in Calidus, Xenon, and RAF variants, but I will only do flight reviews in RAF's, not primary instruction, as I don't feel as I am ready to take on that challenge quite yet. I am currently looking at redoing an RAF as a Sparrowhawk now that I seem to be able to get those parts again and in which case I intend to offer training when all the paperwork is in order. I am also an A&P, and I am willing to do condition inspections on experimental aircraft as the need arises. This is not my primary job, as I am normally outside the US flying for the government, so early scheduling is best. I should be back in Michigan for January. E-mail is the best contact, and I can be reached at [email protected].

Welcome Matthew!

Your services are needed.

I hope you will write about your adventures so we all can learn.

Hi George, I am also based out of Howell and Brighton, we met once before on the road in front of your hanger and spoke for a few minutes after I saw you come back from a flight. I think that my Gyro will be based in Brighton.

Thanks Vance, I will do my best to add to the discussion but I have to steer clear of certain personality types. I am fully well aware that there are limitations to my knowledge and skillset. Sometimes it is best not to engage.

Matt:
I remember. We were talking through the fence for a while. If I recall correctly, you mentioned something about owing or flying a Huey.( I may be totally wrong about that)
Hopefully we can get together with our machines at some point. I have a friend who also has an AR-1 down at 1D2.

Yep, That was me. I don't have the helicopter now, my partner and I managed to sell it. I don't think I will ever be able to give up helicopters completely, but for now I am not flying one.
