Welcome to ExpertAviator.com the website for aviation news, commentary, product reviews, and advice on learning to fly. My name is Carl Valeri and my passion is flying and aviation.
I am fortunate to have turned my hobby of flying into my profession as a flight instructor and airline Captain. My passion for airplanes and flying started as a child building model airplanes. May 1, 1989 I took my first flight in a small airplane and I was hooked. Now I spend more days in the air than on the ground.
This website is both educational and entertaining. I truly believe in the axiom "a good pilot is always learning". Regardless of the type of flying you can always learn. I hope you will take away from this site new insights and knowledge that will make you a more competent and safe pilot.
For those interested in aviation and that do not fly airplanes, I will discuss topics and terms you may hear in the news or from friends to provide you with further understanding of the aviation either as a enthusiast or a user of the air transportation system.
Finally, I hope this site is entertaining. One thing I have found with aviators and those interested in aviation is their ability to talk at length about their passion of flying. I have included articles on places to visit, restaurants, and things you want to see from the air.
