Have you met Laconia’s newest CFII, Jim Allen?
Though Jim grew up in Pennsylvania, and went to school in Rochester, NY, he has close connections with New England. He was born on the New London Naval Station in Groton, CT. His mother and father grew up in Westford, MA and Dorchester, MA respectively. His maternal grandparents retired to Hebron, NH resulting in many fun winter and summer weeks visiting them.
James joins us after a twenty year Naval flying career in which he experienced both time at sea, and in the desert. Such has given him a peculiar appreciation for the green scenery and clear waters of New Hampshire. James has enjoyed flying most of his life and is glad to have the opportunity to share his unique experience, skills, and passion with our clients at MGAV.
James brings with him an ATP, MEI, CFII, a glider rating and a floatplane qualification. With 1700 hours in a F/A-18 Hornet and over 3000 sorties, he has many stories to tell. He is s a graduate of the Air Force Test Pilot School. A “One Cruise Wonder,” he brings with him a mere 210 “Traps” aka Carrier Arrested Landings – though he has touched multiple aircraft carriers including The Enterprise (CVN-65), The George Washington (CVN-73), The Truman (CVN-75), The Eisenhower (CVN-69), and The Stennis (CVN-74). Though not flying from them, he has some time aboard The Wasp and The French Ship Mistral. No, he does not speak French. With that, let’s try to remind Jim that we flare in our landings here at MGAV and there is no tailhook.
Pro-Tip of the Month by CFII Cameron Ditto
Putting Yourself in Airplane Mode
Mental fitness for flight may be one of the key factors to having a successful flight, but so often it is overlooked by other factors. Being both mentally prepared for the flight ahead and having the proper mindset as you step out to the aircraft for a flight can make all the difference between a successful flight and one that does not measure up to standards.
