A little over a year later, in fall 2016, he began his private pilot training at ATP. “I looked into Part 141 schools and even did Air Force ROTC for one semester, but none of those options felt right,” he says. Today, he works as the lead flight instructor at ATP’s Ogden, Utah, location, where he earned all of his certificates and ratings. “I coordinate check rides and make sure everyone’s happy and doing what they’re supposed to be doing,” he says. Luke also flies on a regular basis with several commercial and multiengine students.
