Welcome to Progressive Aviation Services, LLC


Looking for the highest quality in training and aviation services? Then you have come to the right place. We specialize in Cirrus Aircraft and a wide variety of other Technically Advanced Aircraft, such as the Piper PA-46 line of aircraft (Malibu/Mirage/Matrix/Meridian), the Cessna Corvalis line of aircraft (nee: Lancair Columbia), and provide the same services in dozens of other general aviation aircraft. 

P.A.S. has a syllabus for most areas of training, from initial transition, advanced avionics, proficiency maneuvers, systems, instrument proficiency checks, flight reviews, mountain training courses, high-performance refreshers, and courses customized to fit your needs.

P.A.S. is owned and operated by a highly experienced professional pilot. In addition to having worked directly for Cirrus as a delivery pilot and factory instructor, I have provided instruction in nearly 70 types of general aviation aircraft and a few transport-category aircraft, as well. I have had the pleasure of working with hundreds of Cirrus & other High-Performance aircraft owners over the past decade during the acceptance/delivery of their aircraft, throughout their transition and recurrent training events, during mountain training courses, and in a wide variety of consultation roles. Additionally, I have held the Cirrus Standardized Instructor Program (CSIP) credential continuously since the first day it was available in late-2003 and the Platinum CSIP status since its inception in 2010. I have been an active flight instructor for over 20 years and am currently a 5-time Master Instructor (one of only 26 instructors in the world to have earned that credential 5 consecutive times). Unlike most Master Instructor’s, I’ve earned that title through both governing bodies who administer the FAA-recognized program (the National Assoc. of Flight Instructors and Master Instructors, LLC).  To see what my customers (both Cirrus and otherwise) have to say about their experiences working with me, please visit the Customer Testimonials section.

Cirrus Aircraft, Piper, Cessna, and other others Technically Advanced Aircraft makers, and even homebuilders are building some terrific products that P.A.S. is happy to support. It is the goal of P.A.S. to provide you with the services you desire and to make you the safest and most proficient pilot you are capable of being. I know that we will be able to provide you with quality instruction in your specific area of need. I look forward to flying with you soon.
