In early 2004, for some unknown reason, I decided to stop by my local airport near Aurora, Illinois. The flight instructor approached me and asked if I wanted to go on an intro flight. The rest is history.
Come to 2011: I was introduced to the Kitfox in Idaho where I received tailwheel and Kitfox-specific training from Stick & Rudder Aviation, and was introduced to the Kitfox aircraft, factory, and product. Over several years of training, Kitfox proficiency, exposure to mountain flying, CFI work, and great mentors, I became hooked and started offering Kitfox training in 2016. On occasion, I fly the backcountry of Idaho in the Kitfox and assist with flight training and continue to develop my mountain flying proficiency.
Now, with over 2700 hours of flying and 1400 hours of flight instruction given, I want to bring the flying passion to new pilots and continue to develop safe pilots through high-quality training.
Halterman Aviation LLC is Located at North Texas Regional Airport in Denison, Texas, and provides flight & ground training and rentals with a specialty in Kitfox-specific training.
