Browning’s first flight in a small plane was at 3 months old, and she’s had a passion for flying ever since. Although she didn’t start taking flight lessons until after graduating from Texas A&M University, it was always a huge part of her life growing up. Her dad and three older brothers are all airline pilots and her mom is a flight attendant, so aviation is at the center of her family. In her free time, Browning likes to hike, ski, and spend time with her pets.

In his free time, Chris enjoys spending time with his wife and their border collie/basset hound named Aspen.

Kendra began flying in college when several members of a student flying organization encouraged her to take a discovery flight. Like many aviators, she was “bit by the aviation bug” and has been hooked on flying ever since. She went on to finish her degree in Civil Engineering and worked as an engineer for a few years before deciding to pursue a career as a professional pilot. Originally from Minnesota, she has lived in Wisconsin, Texas, Ohio, and Colorado, and consequently has a wide variety of flying experience. Her favorite part about being a flight instructor is getting to share her passion with others and helping people turn their dreams of becoming a pilot into reality.

Murray Hawthorne

Flight Instructor

A native of Michigan, following ROTC and an undergraduate degree from Michigan State University, Murray's aviation career started as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army back in 1987. After 10 years, 1,000+ flight hrs, service at USAAVNC as a UH-60A Blackhawk helicopter CFII, and promotion to the rank of Major, he decided to leave active duty Army aviation in exchange for a career in the medical device manufacturing industry. His interest in aviation reignited 15 years later when he added ASEL credentials to his Commercial RW and CFII certificates. His ASEL cross country day, night, IMC experience exceeds 60,000 NM with destinations including Naples Fl, Rutland VT, Mackinaw Island MI, Anchorage AK, Bellingham WA, Santa Ana CA, and over 60 airports in between. He says he added the AGI and IGI ratings to his Ground Instructor Certificate "just for the fun of it."

Ryan Hernblooms

Flight Instructor

Ryan's had a passion for aviation since he can remember and took his first flight at the age of 12 with the Civil Air Patrol. After obtaining his private pilot certificate at 19, he went on to receive his instrument, commercial multi and single engine ratings, and eventually his flight instructor certificates. One of his favorite highlights in aviation was flying in a C-130 to DIA for its opening air show. He has flown to airports around the country like Sedona, Arizona and San Diego, California in two of his favorite aircraft, the Diamond Twin Star and the Cirrus SR22T. His greatest thrill, however, is seeing his students obtain the flying and decision making skills necessary to become safe and competent pilots. 

Shashank Kamat

Flight Instructor

Shashank was raised in Kentucky and moved to Denver 5 years ago to pursue his pilot's license and certificates. He's had a love for aviation since his first flight on a commercial airliner at the age of 6. He started his aviation career on the engineering side, but switched to the flying side after discovering how much more fun it was to be in the air than on the ground.
 
Shashank has a commercial single and multi engine license with instrument rating. He recently got his instructor certificates including CFII, and MEI. He’s excited to be a part of the team and start teaching!

Certificates: Commercial, ASES, ASEL, AMEL
Flight Instructor: CFI/CFII/MEI, Mountain and Tailwheel Instruction

Tim’s students come from all over the USA and Canada to learn how to fly in the Rockies.

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.
