Luke Martin


About Luke

I’ve been interested in aviation for as long as I can remember. My father worked as a corporate pilot, so I was exposed to aviation at a very young age. I earned my private license in 2020 and finished my instrument, commercial, and CFI ratings in 2022. As a CFI, I love getting to introduce others to the joy of flying. Eventually, I want to fly for the airlines or a corporate flight department.
