With a rich and diverse background of commercial helicopter flying, river guiding / training and graphic design behind him, Robb is a capable, responsible and experienced service provider. First and foremost, he enjoys his work, which is step one in giving his customers a safe, creative, cost effective and great customer experience.

When learning a new skill, it is imperative that your Instructors are well versed in proper teaching techniques. Knowing how to fly a helicopter, row a boat or tie a knot is only part of the skills a teacher must have. Delivering the new skill to the student in an efficient, thorough and clear manner is a key element in your training. Robb has over 25 years experience in the river and aviation environment. He is an FAA Certified Flight Instructor with 1500+ hours of flight instruction given in various aircraft and has been training private and guide level river students since 1992.


When considering learning advanced flying techniques, scheduling a pilot certification, learning to row or paddle a boat or needing creative design or branding services, please inquire well in advance of your needs. Remember, Robb is a “one man army” and proactive scheduling is essential to your overall service experience.

Your optimal times for scheduling are:

• River Training: Fall, Late Winter, Early Spring
