Tyler Sorensen, Flight Instructor

Certificates and Ratings: CFI, CFII

Tyler is a Bay Area native. He grew up in Fremont and graduated from CSU East Bay. After working in the tech industry for nearly a decade, Tyler made the decision to pursue a career in aviation full-time. It has been his dream to fly since the age of ten, so he got his private pilot certificate in Palo Alto in 2018, and then went on to earn his other certificates soon after. While just being able to share the excitement of flight is amazing, Tyler’s favorite part of teaching is when the student achieves a breakthrough moment on a challenging subject and gains a new level of confidence and understanding.

When he’s not flying, you can find Tyler playing guitar or exploring the great outdoors.
