OUR INSTRUCTORS

SUSAN NJUGUNA, CFI, CFII, MEI, Lead Instructor

Originally from Nairobi, Kenya, she always knew she wanted to be a pilot and when life granted the opportunity to try it while on vacation in Kansas, she jumped at the opportunity. That first flight led to a whole career change from an Avionics Tech with Kenya Airways to starting all over as a student in University of Central Missouri (UCM) where she graduated with a Flight Operations Management degree and went on to complete her ratings with ATP. She currently is a CFI, CFII and MEI and enjoying every day in the skies.

JUSTIN FISHMAN

Born and raised in Olathe, KS. Took my first flight back in 2012 at Air Associates. I earned my Bachelors in aviation from Kansas State Polytechnic in 2014. I’ve been a flight instructor for little over a year teaching private all the way up to commercial multi-engine.

ANDREW RIGGINS, CFI, CFII, MEI, AGI

Born and raised in Blue Springs, MO. Earned a Bachelors degree in business administration from UMKC. Always having been intrigued by the thought of flying I moved down to Florida to pursue a career in Aviation. After 3 years of training and instructing I have accumulated over 1,000 hours of instruction given in both single and multi-engine aircraft. I also fly a Cessna Citation Jet for a local Kansas City operation. When not flying I enjoy being outdoors fishing, and attending every Royals and Chiefs game that I can. I’m always positive and laid back and enjoy helping students achieve their goals and dreams in aviation.

JEANNÉ WILLERTH, CFI, CFII, MEI, IGI

Jeanné Willerth is a Master CFI who provides single and multi-engine training. She was named the 2015 “CFI of the Year” for both the Kansas City FSDO and the FAA’s Central Region. Jeanné was the 2012 “National FAASTeam Rep of the Year” and her primary emphasis is safety and lifelong learning. She also does aviation consulting and presents aviation seminars around the country. Jeanné is a local airport board member and is active in the Ninety-Nines, SAFE, and the Missouri Pilots Association. She volunteers for Angel Flight Central, Challenge Air, LifeLine Pilots and Young Eagles.
