Join NAFI: www.nafinet.org

This episode is sponsored by: NAFI Summit 2023



This is a special new format for the MRR Podcast, hosted by NAFI Director of Publications and Editor Beth Stanton.

With each release of a new Mentor Magazine (every other month), Beth will pick a regular contributing author to join the podcast and discuss their article, as well as their personal journey as flight instructors and what originally brought them to NAFI as members.


About Boots:

Boots is my full name. It’s not a nickname. I was born and grew up in Hollywood, California, which usually is enough of an explanation. It’s the only name on my driver’s license, FAA certificates and passport. I obtained my private pilot certificate in about 1968, my instrument, commercial and multiengine about three years later, and my CFI, CFII and multiengine CFI around 20 years ago. I also obtained my A&P certificate with an IA about 25 years ago. Most of my flying was based at the Van Nuys Airport (KVNY), and I owned a Cardinal RG for about 10 years. I’ve flown in many parts of the world, including Central America, Africa and Europe, but never actually flew or wrenched for a living. I was on the Rare Bear racing team when we were winning at Reno. I am still active as a flight instructor and live in Knoxville, Tennessee.
