About Tailwinds

Tailwinds is currently a small, one-man, one-airplane operation with a state-of-the-art flight simulator.  As we grow, adding more instructors and airplanes, I’ll update the website. What I won’t do is try to convince you we are something that we’re not.

About Howard J. Cooper

Founder / Owner

With some 25-years of experience as an educator, Howard came to aviation with a passion for teaching.  He holds a Master’s Degree in Education (Boston University), is a Certified Flight Instructor and an Advanced Ground Instructor.  He is happiest in the classroom or working one-on-one with students. Extraordinarily patient (I’ve raised 3 kids and 3 dogs) Howard uses humor with lots of motivation, inspiration and encouragement to help his student reach their goals. He is a great communicator and relationship-builder, advocate for aviation and a true mentor.
