List of instructors for Commanders
« on: December 06, 2017, 06:15:50 pm »
We need one of these.

I just finished up recurrent at simcom.  Unbeknownst to me they moved the sims to Orlando.  Guess I was not paying attention.

Thats just a little to far.

Next time I want to find somebody much closer to home and train in my plane.

Best case would be an instructor who could come to me saving me the days away.

Please post contact info for any instructors you have used or just know of?

Hi Steve:

I?ve also been looking for instructors. I think everybody here has heard of Bill Leff,  billleff@aol.com  (937) 369-3334, he?s well recommended by some of the group members and I am currently in talks with him for the 685 training. A couple of weeks ago I met an instructor here in Calexico that work for a guy named Larry York and he was giving some initial instruction in a Dash 10 690, they only give instruction in Turboprop Commanders, looked them up and they seemed very profesional:  http://www.larryyorkaviation.com

Hope this helps.

bobhuskey@icloud.com is a remarkable instructor and also works thru Larry York. If you are able to match up your time with his it would be well worth it.

Also he is fully certified for just about every insurance carrier in North America.  So his "sign off" will work for your carrier.

Bob is an awesome Commander pilot and totally professional instructor.

That?s some good info, they have a nice website. Hearing about your personal experience is great.

How did I miss them?

Larry York looks like a great option. I've used Aero Air for my training for many years, but I don't know if they will take people from outside... they might, if they have time. They have a couple of outstanding Commander instructors, with many years of operational experience.

Aero Air might not be able to take care of me this year (still hoping), so I just reached out to Larry York Aviation.
