Observations from training in 2020

Hello, my name is Carl Gegenheimer. I am the Chief Flight Instructor and Head of Flight Training for L3Harris’ U.S. training sites. I started my aviation adventure in 2005 when I enrolled into the Academy’s Professional Pilot Program, was hired as a Flight Instructor in 2007 and have worked in both the Flight Standards and Flight Training departments since then.
