Instructor Spotlight:  Will Lowery


Will was welcomed into the Envoy Pipeline Program in 2014. he trained with us at SAA, and is currently an instructor here in sunny San Diego.




















"I enjoy instructing students as they progress in the world of aviation, while building hours for my own progression!  Being at SAA is like being part of a family, where you know everyone and communication is good."  


As an instructor, Will communicates his timebuilding progress with Envoy regularly, so they can project the date he will report for duty in his new airline job.  Will is on track to attain his hours minimums in October of 2015, and will begin his standardization and type rating at Envoy shortly after.
