Welcome to Colorado Flight Training, the website of Simon Roberts, CFII. I currently do not have access to an airplane to teach in, however, I'm ready and able to fly with you in yours if you have one. I hope this situation will change before too long.

I teach to all airplane single-engine ratings, and also mountain flying transitions, tailwheel endorsement, and am a former Cirrus Standardized Instructor. I offer flight reviews (aka BFR) and instrument proficiency checks (IPC), and subject to inspection and insurance requirements, am willing to fly with you in your experimental aircraft.

I have 2200 hours PIC, 800 in tailwheel, and just shy of 1000 hours dual given. I also hold a commercial glider rating and fly towplanes for a local glider club. I love teaching and I'm not trying to build hours for an airline job. Prior to earning my certificated flight instructor (CFI) in 2002, I was a senior instructor with Sun Microsystems, teaching computing and writing training courses, I have continued to teach computing topics too, so I have extensive experience of the teaching process, and I bring a high level of professionalism in teaching to my flight instruction activities.

In the column at the left are the services I offer, if you have unanswered questions, please feel free to contact me to discuss any aviation-related topic.
