Company Cites Growing Demand For Flight Training
Nashua Flight Simulator, the Northeast's premier provider of recurrent training for business-class piston twins, turbo-prop twins, and high-performance single engine aircraft, announces the addition of two experienced pilot instructors, Doug Lyons and Bob McCulla.
Doug Lyons joins Nashua Flight Simulator as a recurrent training instructor specializing in the Piper Cheyenne I & II. Doug has amassed over 6000 hours of flight time during his 40 year career and holds an ATP certificate, CFI, ASEL, AMEL, Instrument and Ground Instructor ratings. Following his graduation from UCONN in 1970, he served eight years as a USAF pilot and aircraft commander for the KC-135. Since retiring from military duty, Doug has worked for charter operators, municipalities and other private companies holding positions such as chief pilot, charter pilot and instructor pilot. Doug is typed in the CE-500, 550 and S550 and is highly proficient in the Piper Cheyenne I, II & IIXL.
Bob McCulla joins Nashua Flight Simulator as a recurrent training instructor specializing in the 300/400 series Twin Cessna. He has over 23,000 hours of flight time, holds an ATP certificate and is rated for SEL, SES, MES and Glider. Bob started his career in general aviation before going to work for Gulf Oil, flying their executive fleet. He then went to work for Allegheny Airlines, and later US Airways, until retiring in 2000. Even while flying for the airlines, Bob remained active as a general aviation pilot and became highly proficient in the Cessna 310, 320, 411, 414 and 421 variants. Bob owns a C-310 which he continues to fly for personal use.
The recent additions are the result of growing demand at Nashua Flight Simulator and compliment the company's impressive roster of seasoned pilot instructors.
