Greg presently serves the FAA as a Designated Pilot Examiner in the Eclipse 500 (“VLJ”). He has over 40 years experience as a light-jet Captain and professional flight instructor, specializing in piston-to-jet transition courses in the Eclipse. After retiring for four years aboard his 42’ sailboat “Marilyn” while cruising around Mexico and the Caribbean, Greg learned to be a semi-decent fisherman and sushi chef. He missed flying immensely and immediately set about to rededicate himself to the art of owning too many airplanes by starting a Part 141 flight school in San Diego, California. He was the Chief Instructor responsible for supervising and recommending over 500 students in a two year period. His passion for aviation is self-evident if you spend any time around him; he literally has lived, breathed and been immersed in aviation since early childhood. Greg owned his first flight school in Palo Alto, California at the age of 23, and has always kept his hand in flying throughout his diverse career. For 14 years Greg was a court-appointed fiduciary in the federal bankruptcy and state courts, working through his own company as a bankruptcy trustee and receiver. His company owned and operated a Paris Jet, Fairchild Metroliner, Aero Commander 680, and Enstrom helicopter in the course of traveling the western United States as a fiduciary, and Greg has managed to make it a priority to stay proficient with the latest training and flying techniques while mixing his aviation passion with the practical need for transportation and case surveillance. Greg received his EA 500s type rating in 2007 and was quickly appointed as a factory Mentor Pilot. Through his company Upper Limits Sales and Leasing, Inc., Greg provided pre-type training and post-type Mentoring and Supervised Operating Experience for more than 100 Eclipse owner/operators, and more than 100 MS-760 owner/operators. He has over 18,000 accident free hours and 4000+ hours in the Eclipse 500.
