Matthew Montminy | Flight Instructor
Certificates & Ratings Held: CFI, CFII
I got the aviation bug at a young age. Growing up in an Air Force family, I was around airplanes all the time. Originally, I was on the track to becoming an aeronautical engineer, but after my first discovery flight realized I wanted to be in the air as much as possible.
In pursuit of aviation, I moved to New York City where I became a flight attendant for a major airline. Being my first entry into the lifestyle of aviation, I discovered that it was even more amazing than I could have imagined. I told myself that this was as far as I would go into the industry, and that flight training was too expensive. Well, we know how that worked out! Not very long after, I jumped over to the flight deck side, moving down to Dallas to do my flight training— and my life will never be the same.
I’m incredibly excited to train with you as you pursue your path to aviator. In my training, I was able to learn and ingrain the information because of the encouragement and belief I received from my instructors and the pilots around me. I plan to bring this same encouragement and belief to my students. Learning to fly can be challenging, but it’s also incredibly fun and rewarding— we are breaking the surly bonds of Earth!
Some of my hobbies and interests include: playing piano, cycling, cooking, business, traveling, and of course— everything to do with aviation!"
