About Us

Wright Aviation was created in 2009 to provide one-on-one instructional services, focused on owners of cabin class aircraft.  The goal was (and remains) to maintain a team of highly experienced, exceptionally qualified individual instructors, who are dedicated to delivering learning experiences well above and beyond to norm. 

The founder was a retired airline executive with more than 33 years airline management experience in a wide range of airline disciplines. Starting in aircraft maintenance, he moved through customer service, in-fight service, airport operations, sales, marketing, scheduling and passenger pricing before moving back into airport management.  As a General Manager, he directed airport operations at various US locations, and opened up new operations in Europe, South American and China. He then went on to manage the airline's worldwide operation as a Manager of System Operations Control.  From there he moved on to a business development role at the airline's parent company. His final assignment, before retiring in early 2002, was setting up and managing the operational side of a new fractional jet business owned by the parent company that began operations in the fall of 2001. 

Shortly after retiring and moving to Florida, our founder became a flight instructor and began to create an aircraft rental/flight training business in Fort Lauderdale, FL built around the Cirrus SR20/SR22 aircraft (Correct Aviation Services and Correct Aviation Maintenance).  He earned a Master Flight Instructor accreditation as he built the rental and training business into the largest Cirrus Training Center before selling it in early 2009 and relocating to Arizona.

Wright Aviation Services was then created to focus on providing top quality, in airplane, pilot training as well as support services, for individuals acquiring and flying high performance, cabin class aircraft.  Originally focused on Arizona, the business has expanded throughout the western United States.

"Not only did I learn a thing or two, you got me out of my comfort zone.  I have never blown the cabin and made a 4000 +ft/ min descent while wearing the O2 mask.  I’ve always been scared to even touch the MOR lever, much less land the aircraft using it solely.  I feel confident that in an emergency, I would be proficient in both now.   Although, I’ve done these activities in the Sim, nothing can compare with actually doing it.  Having you in my plane, did a lot more than flying an expensive video game." 
David O - Oklahoma City, OK

“…Michael is great.  Having spent time with both Joe and Michael you should be proud of the Teachers, Coaches, Mentors that you have.
I continue to learn each trip a new technique or trick to become a better pilot.”
Jeff S - Santa Barbara, CA

"It was a pleasure training with (Joe)!  I appreciate your thorough knowledge of the TBM.  Not only was the training program professional but also customizable to fit my busy schedule.  I felt as though no time was wasted.  As a sixteen year Major Airline Pilot I have been through many training events.  I can honestly say my Initial training event with you on the TBM was outstanding!!"
- Kerry S., Knoxville, OH

"......he  is an excellent aviation and flight training professional with a warm and likeable personality. My son and I worked with him to pass written, oral and practical tests through ATPL level. Rick combines extensive and in-depth knowledge of all relevant materials with excellent teaching skills. Upon completion we felt truly enriched by our achievements and made a friend in the process." 

- Han K, The Netherlands
