My first flight behind the controls was October 2010, while living in Las Vegas... but I was hooked on the idea of being a professional pilot years before that!  After running a music store at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport for several years, among other professional pursuits, the idea of flying began to give me pilot fever. Then one day it hit me, "I can be whatever I want to be... This is America!"  I went back to school and earned a degree in Aviation Technology and sought to begin my career in Professional Aeronautics.  Having received all my certificates and ratings while working as dispatcher at my flight school, my responsibilities grew to day to day operations, and eventually, Certified Flight Instructor.  Now, I have returned home to Thousand Oaks where all of my true passions are being realized... Teaching airplanes in California and being a part of a truly special business, Camarillo Flight Instruction!

Flying has always been a desire. I first soloed in 1975. Then came family, career and several corporate relocations. Thirty years later, in 2005 I again had the opportunity and privilege to pursue flying and obtained my private license. Flying is an environment of continual learning. This aspect ultimately led me to become a CFI. Flight instruction has been a great way to share my passion and enthusiasm for flight. Flying also can provide unique adventures. In connection with obtaining a seaplane rating, I had the opportunity to fly a seaplane on pure floats from Minneapolis Minnesota to Lake Pierce Florida. Fly-ins and fly-outs are great experiences and give you the opportunity to meet the most interesting people. In the interest of continuing education, I am working on my CFII.

I knew I wanted to be a pilot from a very young age; playing with Lego bricks I would assemble all sorts of flying machines and space ships. At the age of fourteen, I approached my parents with the idea of taking flying lessons and, knowing my passion for it, they said yes. When I turned sixteen I soloed, and at the age of seventeen I had a pilot’s license. While attending college in San Diego, I continued building hours and experience; adding instrument, commercial, multi-engine and flight instructor privileges to my license. By 2008 I made my way back to Camarillo and continued my passion for flying by receiving a checkout with a local flight school. Having flown out of several flight schools in San Diego, I soon realized that Camarillo lacked what most other airports seemed to have- a great flight school. So I set out to buy an airplane and, with my instructor certificate, teach others how to fly. I could never have predicted what would come of it- today with six aircraft and a fantastic group of flight instructors to work with, I'm humbled by our success and look forward to continuing to offer pilots a great place to learn and fly.

I was intrigued by aviation at an early age. As a teenager I managed to convince my parents to enroll me in weekend flight training, starting me on a journey which would ultimately provide me with some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I received my initial flight instructor certification in 1999, followed by instrument and multi-engine instructor ratings. Currently I am working on my tailwheel endorsement and hope to add a sea plane rating within the coming year. That’s what I love about aviation; it is a constant learning experience, one which I enjoy sharing with others.

Nyasha spent the majority of his childhood in Zimbabwe dreaming about becoming a pilot. Part of the first generation to be born after colonial rule, the “born-free” generation, he was ambitious from a young age, setting his mind on an education and on a sustainable career. He was awarded an academic scholarship at 16 to study in New York where he eventually earned his MBA.
Today, Nyasha is a commercially rated pilot and flight instructor with multiengine and instrument privileges. He also volunteers for Aeromedicos of Santa Barbara, a nonprofit healthcare organization consisting of medical personnel, pilots, mechanics, translators, and other volunteers. Every month, the Aeromedicos team flies missions to remote parts of Mexico in order to provide free medical and dental care to people who would otherwise go untreated.
Nyasha hopes through his actions to inspire children in Africa to follow their dreams.In 2014, he founded PiLAB Africa, an organization that installs Raspberry Pi’s in poor neighborhoods across Africa. In 2020, he plans on becoming the first African to fly around the world in a single-engine piston aircraft. During that flight, the message will be clear: don’t give up on yourselves! Nyasha, after all, never did.

I was born and raised in the San Diego sunshine with a good majority of my childhood spent in the right seat of my dad’s Cessna Skylane. The aviation bug hit hard after high school when I began training for a private pilot license in Carlsbad, CA. It only took a discovery flight to be certain- aviation was going to be a huge part of my life. I moved to Ventura County and immediately dove into instrument training, which I completed in just three months.  In December 2015, I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Aviation Management from Southern Illinois University. I am currently pursuing a commercial certificate, as well as working towards becoming an advanced ground instructor.
