Ever since he was a little boy, Stefan knew that he wanted to be a pilot. A family friend, a Captain for United, let him fly the flight simulators at the United Airlines Flight Training Center (Stapleton) and he was hooked. He also got to fly with his uncle, who owns an aero club in Spain. His long-term goal is to make it to the airlines, but currently he loves being able to introduce other people to aviation, as well as learning from each student. When he’s not flying, Stefan enjoys traveling, skiing, hiking, and fishing.
