About Bob Smith

Growing up in a small farming community in West Tennessee, Bob Smith dreamed of being a pilotbut that dream always seemed unattainable. Instead, he served in the U.S. Army in Germany before moving to Pennsylvania to take a job as an industrial chemist. Bob decided to pursue his childhood aviation ambitions. Now he boasts 20 years of flying experience in the Greater Philadelphia area. He enjoys gardening, woodworking and spending time with his wife and two children. As a flying instructor, Bob aims to accommodate each student’s unique learning style and build a relationship based on trust and respect. He loves that, through his job, he can help others chase the same dream he harbored as a boy.

What Are Students Saying?

"I’ve been taking lessons at Tailwinds Flight Education for approximately 1 year and have to say that I absolutely love this school. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and explain things in a way that is easy to comprehend. I have a very busy schedule between a law enforcement career, home life, and being a Guardsman in the Airforce. Howard’s flexibility and motivation is greatly appreciated and shows that he and his staff truly care about my progression. I had taken lessons at another flight school in the past and can now see how many things were overlooked. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is seeking to make a career out of flying or simply to enjoy life on another level. Being in control of flying is an experience that is very uplifting and the confidence that it builds not only assists me with my comfort level when flying but also extends into my personal life. I am very thankful for all that Tailwinds has taught me and for providing the motivation to keep striving for more."
