The Past: Physics and More
Ron has a Physics Degree from Harvey Mudd College, one of the most competitve science and engineering schools in the country. After graduating with distinction, Ron worked for the Department of Energy at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a nuclear physicist until 1993. While at LLNL, Ron completed his flight instructor training, taught several students on the side and ran a seven-aircraft, 100-member flying club. Discovering that teaching was his passion, Ron moved to Colorado in 1993 at which time he began flight-instructing full time.
Ron's background in physics and ability to explain difficult concepts gives him an uncommonly strong foundation from which to approach the physics of flight, one of his favorite topics. If you have an interest in aerodynamics, Ron is the perfect instructor to address your questions.
Ron learned to fly in Los Angeles while attending a highly specialized flight school at Harvey Mudd College. Having earned both his private pilot certificate and instrument rating in the most complex and congested airspace in the world, Ron has a particular love for training in high-density airspace. If you have any hesitation about flying into a control-towered airport, class C or class B airspace, Ron would love to help you hone your radio communication skills.
