Learn To Fly

You’ve come to the right place.  I am a certified flight instructor, commercial pilot and advanced ground instructor with over flight 2,000 hours.  I’ve taught over 200 people how to fly and was the founder and first president of the University of Michigan Flyers.

On Maui, you can hire me to learn to fly, practice cross-wind takeoffs and landings (Maui is the cross-wind capital of the world according to AOPA Pilots Magazine), or take a site-seeing trip around Maui, to Molokai, the volcano at the Big Island or to Hana.  If you want to get to any of those places including Oahu or any Hawaiian island, just send an email to dave(at)mauimanakai.com

  1. Hi Dave, my name is Chris and I am new to the islands. My fiance was recently relocated to Maui for her career and I find myself searching for work. I’m an Embry Riddle grad that grew up on the water in Florida, did a few years of contract flight instruction for the Air Force and Navy, moved on to fly for Delta and was furloughed in October. I don’t expect a recall for a few years and would like to stay here with my fiance but still have to make a living. I came across your page and thought you may be able to lead me in the right direction. If you could help out in any way I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again, hope to hear from you soon.

  2. Hi Dave,

    I am an island girl born in Honolulu and living in the SF Bay Area. I am a student pilot with about 25 hrs of instruction. I will be arriving in Maui next week and would like a 2 hr lesson with you. My dates for a lesson include 1/10 to 1/15.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
