Friday photo: back to instructing…MEI checkride

1 min read

The moment: Multiengine instructor (MEI) checkride

The pilot: Chris DeMaria

The place: Renton Municipal Airport (KRNT), Renton, WA

The aircraft: Piper Seminole

The memory: After a long time away from aviation and flight instruction, I decided to reinstate my CFI/I by way of the addition of an MEI rating. This represents the culmination of years of dreaming of returning to aviation and my passion for teaching others how to fly. My instructor, Jeff Katten (Rainier Flight Service, KRNT) was instrumental in my success and he brings passion and professionalism to flight training—I was very lucky to work with him! I look forward to contributing to the aviation community again and to sending students on the same incredible journey that I have experienced as a commercial pilot and flight instructor!
