Mike Kehoe, CFII

John “Mike” Kehoe is our newest instructor, but is hardly new! Mike has around 30 years of experience in the world of aviation. He holds Commercial, and Multi-Engine Instrument Certifications as well as CFI, CFII, MEI, AGI, and AGII ratings. Along with these, he is also a Gold Seal Instructor as well as a four-time (soon to be five) NAFI Master Instructor.

According to Mike, one of the most satisfying moments in aviation is watching a student experience their first “solo flight”. A close second would be the student passing their checkride on the first try.

Mike has four children and four grandchildren. He still enjoys flight instructing and has also taught sky diving, scuba diving, and snow skiing. When asked to sum up life as a professional flight instructor, Mike said, “What a great career, being a flight instructor. Where else can you experience the thrill and joy of ‘first-time experiences’ over and over again?”
