Hello and Welcome!
an overview of myself and this blog

Jack O'Leary in Cessna 152 cockpit

My name is John O’Leary, although everyone calls me Jack.[1] Nice to meet you!

I am a private pilot in the Bay Area, training to be a certified flight instructor (CFI). I’m currently working on my Instrument Rating.

My (smart, beautiful, and supportive) wife suggested setting the goals for this blog in the first post. She’s usually right, so let’s do that.

This blog is meant to cover my passions: learning, teaching, and flying.

  1. I also go by Jules Altis in online communities (such as live streams or planning Microsoft Flight Sim fly-ins).
