Kyle Smathers started flying in 2011 and is passionate about aviation. He is dedicated to the mindset that there is always more to be learned about flying and instructing. Making himself a better pilot and instructor is something he focuses on. His first introduction to teaching was tutoring mathematics and physics where he found joy in helping people understand new topics. Following that, he obtained his FAA advanced ground instructor certificate so that he could help people with their aviation knowledge. He thinks that flying is one of the most interesting things in the world and looks forward to exposing aviation to new pilots and to helping other pilots improve their flying skills. Kyle graduated from San Jose State with a BS in Aerospace Engineering.
