Grade 2 Flight Instructor Raymond He is Melbourne born and raised, he has been flying for nearly 4 years.
Like many pilots, he was instantly hooked on flying after experiencing the thrill of take-off in an airliner as a child.
As a Flight Instructor at LTF, Raymond loves to teach people something they’re passionate about and then see them progress through their training, whilst also expanding his own aviation knowledge. He’d one day love to be sitting in the left seat of a jet airliner sipping on some coffee.
LTF Grade 2 Flight Instructor Summer Russell grew up west of Melbourne in the city of Geelong, and began her pilot journey at the start of 2018. During her final year at high school she went on a Trial Introductory Flight out of Lethbridge Airport, and was immediately hooked on flying.
After finishing her school studies she went on to complete a Diploma of Aviation, immediately followed by a Flight Instructor Rating course with us here at Learn To Fly. As an Instructor, Summer looks forward to passing on her knowledge to the next generation of pilots as they grow and learn, beginning their own aviation journeys.
Excited to see where her pilot career takes her, she would one day love to join a major airline. At this early stage though, Summer is keen to focus on making the most of each rewarding step as she builds her flying skillset, and enjoying the unique perspective of the world that only a pilot gets to see every day.
Chun Ki started flying in July 2018, right here at Learn To Fly. We have watched him progress through his CPL training, followed by a Multi-Engine Command Instrument Rating and Flight Instructor Rating. He is the first student to have joined the team having completed every single part of their training with us, and we are very excited to have him on board.
Originally from Hong Kong, Chun Ki has always been fascinated by the sky. After initially starting to study a different degree after high school, he realised quickly that his dream was to become a pilot. At age 18, on his own, he bought himself a plane ticket to Melbourne, organised accommodation, and booked in to start training with LTF – and the rest is history!
Whilst becoming an airline pilot in the future is the long-term dream, right now Chun Ki is focused on enjoying every step of his journey as he continues to learn. We look forward to watching his career grow as well!
Originally from Hong Kong, Clement moved to Sydney when he was 18 to study a Bachelor of Aviation Degree, followed by a Flight Instructor Rating in Melbourne.
He made up his mind to become a pilot after being captivated by the roar of the engines, and being pushed back in his seat during take-off in an airliner as a child.
The things Clement loves most about his role include following the progress of his students, and enjoying the incredible scenery that only pilots get to see. He’d love to one day be flying jets or turbo-props for an international carrier.
Melbourne born and raised, Alex grew up with a love for all things aviation and started flying in 2016.
As a Grade 2 Flight Instructor at Learn To Fly he enjoys watching his students go solo for the first time, pass their exams and ultimately achieve their aviation dreams.
Alex is loving his role as a Flight Instructor at the moment, but future pilot career aspirations include possibly flying with an airline or the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Jed grew up right next to the international airport at Cebu in the Philippines. When he saw an aircraft’s lights on final approach, he’d hop on his bike and rush to the airport fence to see the landing. He caught the aviation bug at a very early age, and also spent many hours on flight sims.
After moving to Melbourne at age 16, Jed spent as much time flying on weekends as he could whilst finishing high school, and then went on to complete the Swinburne aviation program where he obtained a degree in aviation. He loves the dynamic environment that being a flight instructor offers, and the fact that he gets to teach what he loves most.
8 years into his pilot career and as a flight instructor, Jed loves teaching others about what he loves most, and his future career aspirations include becoming a cargo pilot and/or flying turbo-props around the Philippines.
Grade 2 Multi-Engine IFR Flight Instructor Ahmed Ibrahim has been flying for over 20 years. As a child growing up in Cairo, Egypt, he always wanted to be a pilot and loved looking down at the terrain far below every time he flew.
Ahmed has always enjoyed instructing and teaching throughout his career. 5 years ago he decided to combine his hobby and passion to become a full-time instructor.
As an ultimate pilot career goal, he would love to one day own his own flying school teaching next generation ATPLs and specialising in high-performance aircraft instruction.
