Your CFI

My name is Chris Zhang and I fly mostly out of the Reid-Hillview airport in San Jose.  I found out very early that I love teaching.  That was when my college hired me to tutor math and physics to my peers.  I have a B.S. degree in computer science and a J.D.

After law school I received my pilot license, then became a commercial pilot and CFI.  I consider my teaching style to be soft-spoken, mature, patient, with a dry sense of humor.  Flight instruction allows me to do 2 things I love at the same time: flying and teaching.  I promise my students that I will look out for their best interest, all the time.  I look forward to flying with you.

I’m an active member of:

  • NorCal Chinese Aviators
  • Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association
  • Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association
  • Society of Aviation and Flight Educators
  • Angel Flight West

Certificates held:  CFI, IGI, AGI

My promise to my students:

  • I will teach you from start to finish. I do not plan to leave you midway through your training.
  • You will be treated with respect and professionalism. I do not discriminate against gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, native language, etc.
  • My training methods are highly efficient. You will incur no unnecessary expenses.
