Meet the Region Flyers Crew
Our staff is comprised of individuals who have stood out among the crowd. Flying isn’t just a job for these folks – it’s a passion. That’s something that sets us apart. There’s nothing that makes us happier than being in the cockpit and transferring our knowledge to our students. Each instructor carries their own personal experiences which they are excited to share. Furthermore, our instructors and management team will work together to ensure that your lesson plan is picked up right where you left off and that no lessons are repeated! Meet the crew!

Mitchell has been fascinated since a young age by travelling, weather formations, and driving anything that could be operated. He decided to combine all his passions into one form – aviation of course.
Mitchell completed his Private Pilot training at Region Flyers before moving on to more ratings while enrolled as an Aviation Major at Purdue University. As soon as he earned his CFI certificate, he couldn’t wait to come back to Region to instruct.
In Mitchell’s free time, he enjoys spending time with family, boating, water-skiing, and winter snow sports. Mitchell is a Christmas fanatic and enjoys serving at his Church.
Quite an enterprising young man, Mitchell has aspirations to be the Chief Pilot of American Airlines in the future. See you in the sky Mitch!
Phil has been obsessed with all things aviation related since he was a small child. Growing up, he spent many hours building model airplanes and badgering anyone who would listen with obscure details of aviation history or design.
After graduating college, he earned his CFI certificate and began working as an instructor alongside the rest of the Region Flyers crew.
Phil brings that same childhood love of aviation into the classroom and cockpit each day. His passion is to help each of his students achieve their own dreams of flight. When he’s not flying and teaching, he spends his time with his wife Jenny, who is also a teacher, and their dog Lola.
Luke has always been fascinated by anything to do with airplanes since a very early age. His Grandpa was a pilot in WWII and would frequently take Luke to airshows where his interest would become borderline obsession.
Luke obtained his Private Pilot lincense at Region Flyers and would then go on to earn the rest of his ratings and graduate from Purdue University’s flight program.
In his free time, Luke enjoys going to baseball games and playing shows with his band in which he’s the lead singer!
