Kendra Liscom - Flight Instructor
Hey there! I started flying in 2013 in Schenectady, NY where I earned my private pilot certificate pregnant and just two months shy of my first kid's due date. My family and I moved to Phoenix and since then I have continued my training at Fly. at Goodyear Flight training and garnered an instructor certificate -commercial airplane single engine land with an instrument rating. I love to fly and look forward to spending my time with aviation enthusiasts.
Ian Shere - Flight Instructor & website
Gidday all! Gidday, but don't call me Australian! I'm originally from New Zealand (we're called "Kiwis" after the national bird), and married an American in 2007, moving to Sacramento in 2009, then to Buckeye, AZ in January 2014. I'd started my private pilot training in NZ way back in January 1980, but never finished. In May 2015 I decided (with wifely encouragement!) to finish it which I did in June. Since then I've passed my Instrument Rating, Commercial License, CFI and, on the last day of 2020, my CFII.
My wife and I run a Phoenix website design business as well, and were proud to have built, and maintain, the Fly Goodyear website. So I guess you contact me if you're having website issues!!
