Overview:

William Wallace loves any vehicle that is powered from electricity to explosions. This love is manifested in his passion for all things aviation. William was inspired to begin his aviation career by first his grandfather who was a private pilot, and later on by a high-school friend and certified flight instructor (CFI) Spirit Airlines First Officer, Daniel Schafer. Between his time at Belmont University and Liberty University, William got connected with gold seal CFI Steve Stryker at the Music City Executive airport where he received his instrument rating, became a commercial pilot and later a CFI himself! William is based out of the Gallatin/Music City Executive Airport (KXNX) and Bulverde Airpark, Bulverde Texas (1TT8).

Professional Pilot:

As a holder of a commercial pilot certificate, 1st class medical, and spotless record, William can be hired to fly you in, as well as ferry your plane places.

Flight Instruction:

William is a FAA certified flight instructor who can provide Part 61 flight instruction in single engine and multi-engine land airplanes (CFI/MEI/CFII). William’s instruction directly follows the Federal Aviation Regulations & Aeronautical Information Manual (FAR/AIM) and can take you from 0-100 when it comes to getting your private pilot’s license. He specializes in advanced training for tail-wheel, complex, and multi-engine airplanes. Additionally, he can complete your biennial flight review (BFR) and instrument proficiency check (IPC).

William can work with you regardless of your technical background. Don’t know anything about planes? No problem! Many people don’t when they first start out. The proof is in the pudding. After departing a video production and IT career, William has maintained a 100% pass rate in all of his personal check-rides as well as the rides he has sent students to. You would be hard pressed to find a flight school that can compete with that level of quality.

(Due to full-time employment, William is no longer accepting new students. High-performance, complex, tail-wheel, and insurance checkouts may sill be possible on occasion in the greater Nashville and San Antonio areas. Head over to the contact page for inquiries.)
