Among the many great aspects of flying some of Frank's favorites are the freedom, accessibility, and challenges present in every flight.

Frank likes to teach by being patient and building the students understanding and skill to create a confident, competent pilot.

Tim Sale has been flying in the Rockies for almost 40 years. His first mountain experience was in a Piper J-3 Cub. The J-3 Cub is grossly underpowered and flying one in the mountains takes a lot of skill.
Tim’s students come from all over the USA and Canada to learn how to fly in the Rockies.
His approach is to teach pilots how to safely fly in the mountains, not just over them.
Tim will develop your skills on how to extract the maximum performance from your aircraft and use the terrain conditions in the mountains to their greatest extent.
