Three years ago, I decided to pursue a career change. I took a few flight lessons and discovered that I really love flying. I knew that I wanted to make a career of it to hopefully become an airline pilot one day. I am very passionate about flying and teaching, so flight instructing is fulfilling and fun for me. I also have worked for six years as a personal fitness trainer for several long-standing clients. For both flight instructing and personal training, I customize my approach to meet the goals, strengths, and opportunities of the individual. Outside of flying, I am very health-oriented, enjoy sports, and socializing.

I started flying in college at the University of Oklahoma, and that's where I got all of my certificates and ratings. I absolutely fell in love with aviation, and I get a huge kick out of teaching others to fly! My goal is to fly for the airlines and the Air Force Reserve and to help as many people accomplish their aviation dreams as I can.
Shelby LaFerney - GOLD SEAL Instructor - $50 / hour
Certificates: Gold Seal CFI, CFI-I, AGI, CPL ASEL/AMEL, Instrument
469-708-0875 | [email protected]
I've always looked to the sky with amazement. While aviation was always in the back of the mind I pursued the safe route of a desk job. After obtaining a BBA in MIS from the University of Oklahoma and a decade of working for companies like EY, American Airlines, & Mary Kay, I decided to quit corporate life and pursue my passion of aviation. When teaching I love when students have the moments where they see more than just the "how" but truly understand the "why". When not flying I like to spend time with my wife and daughter as well as restore a vintage Airstream.

Hey, I am Arun Mathew. My passion for flying started when my dad took me to his work at the Dubai airport when I was 6. My dream came true when I did my discovery flight at the age of 19. 4 years and an Aeronautical Science degree from Embry-Riddle later, I now have the opportunity to share my knowledge with my fellow aviators. The 4F’s in my life are Faith, Family, Flying, and Food.
Matthew Diessner - Instructor - $45 / hour

I'm a 3rd generation aviator with a family from all backgrounds in the aviation industry. Born and raised an Air Force brat I fell in love with aviation at a young age. Once I turned 18 and graduated high school I attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale and was apart of their NAIA flight team. After my first year, I decided to move to Texas with my family and finish flight training down in Dallas where I received all the rest of my training as well as some extras. I love aviation and could talk forever about it. I also enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, and working on trucks. I look forward to helping create the next generation of pilots.
