In Greg Brown's book The Savvy Flight Instructor the author's love for flying is obvious in every chapter, as is his concern for the image of the flight instructor and flight school: that they perform the best they can to seek out, promote, and sustain the joy of flight for the good of the entire industry.
In keeping with his role as general aviation advocate, Greg hosts the "Aviation Careers Forum" and the "New Pilots Forum" on America Online, and serves as a Contributing Editor for Flight Training magazine. He has entertained and educated aviation audiences as a speaker since 1990, most recently as presenter for NATA's acclaimed Flight School Training Manager Seminars.
An active practitioner of the noble art of flight instructing since 1979, Greg has also served as a professional pilot in both scheduled and corporate aviation, and flown extensively for pleasure and personal business. His teaching background also includes service as faculty member at Purdue University, regular presentations at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and numerous professional seminars.
Greg Brown earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where his graduate work included human-factors cockpit design at the Aviation Research Laboratory. He studied for two years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and completed several advanced flight ratings at Purdue University. He holds an ATP pilot certificate with Boeing 737 type rating, and Flight Instructor certificate with all fixed wing aircraft ratings including glider. Greg also holds Advanced and Instrument Ground Instructor ratings, and has been active as a pilot since 1971.
Greg was honored with the "2000 Industry/FAA National Flight Instructor of the Year" award, and the 2013 Let's Go Flying award from AOPA.
