Our journeys in aviation are as varied and diverse as there are airplanes in the sky. Some pilots have a direct path to career in aviation, while Kevin's path was more zig-zag. Kevin's father was a private pilot and owned his own airplane. This is where Kevin became hooked on aviation as a kid.

Kevin eaned his pilot certificate in 1993 while in college. Kevin took a break from flying while pursuing a career in graphic design. Kevin has always had a passion for aviation, and said maybe one day he would return. His wife encouraged him to return to flying after a long break. Little did she know it would spark an adventure leading to commercial flying.

After getting recurrent he joined the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) where he honed his skills as an aviator teaching aerospace education, rocketry and conducting orientation flights for cadets. Two years in a row he was awarded Pilot of the Year by CAP. During this time he earned his instrument, commercial, CFI and multi engine. Kevin is also a commercial pilot with San Juan Airlines. Flying with Kevin you will be challenged in aviation to prepare you for real world flying, as well has having a lot of fun along the way.

In Bellingham Aviation Services, I have found a partner in my flying experience. They have demonstrated a commitment to the highest standards of excellence through their staff, airplanes and instructors. I have not met one member of their team that I have not been delighted to know and interact with. They are courteous, friendly and professional. I was impressed with their willingness to accomodate all my flying needs and desires.

In addition, I have found Mr. Jeff Eriksen to be an invaluable resource for me. Aside from being intelligent and professional, he has a unique gift of being able to break down the sometimes complex processes of flying an aircraft in a way that makes them more easily discernable by the student. As a result of his assistance, I feel more confident, capable and safe as a pilot.

I have recommended Mr. Eriksen and BAS to anyone who even hints at the possibility of getting into flying. I look forward to a long relationship with this outstanding organization.

If you have ever thought of learning how to fly, you should know about the program at Bellingham Aviation Services. Some time ago I decided to fulfill a lifetime dream and walked in the offices of BAS and was greeted by Mr. Jeff Eriksen. He took the time to make me feel welcome and I immediately could sense the professionalism and expertise exerted within that organization. 

In a time that is becoming increasingly hurried and stressful, I have been able to accomplish, at my own pace, the completion of my private pilot's license. It takes a special person to teach a fifty year old guy new tricks! Jeff did just that in a discreet and sophisticated style. 

As a matter of fact, everyone at BAS was above and beyond my expectations. The teaching and support staff is most helpful and cheerful, the growing fleet is well maintained by a knowledgeable team and I am looking forward to continue learning for years to come at Bellingham Aviation Services. Give them a call or do like I did and stop by, I promise that you will not regret it. 

Over the past couple of years, I have had the beneficial and enjoyable experience of receiving flight instruction from Jeff Eriksen. He is extremely professional and competent in a manner that anyone can easily relate to; and every flight lesson challenges me to improve my skill level. The focus on flying safely makes me more aware of my situation and prepared to deal with any unexpected event. I find this approach very helpful and facilitates my own personal goal of being the best pilot that I can be.
