Welcome Certified Flight Instructor Chris Van Nostrand

May 24, 2016

Chris Van Nostrand

 

Performance Aircraft is pleased to announce the addition of Chris Van Nostrand to our flight training team as Certified Flight Instructor.

As a kid, Chris’ parents asked him what he wanted to grow up to be. After all the flight simulating and plane watching he had done, Chris knew he wanted to be a pilot. Chris shares, “I was that little kid that said he wanted to be a pilot and meant it.”

Chris first encountered Performance Aircraft in 2012 at a Duncan Aviation Day. He began his flight training and quickly earned his Private Pilot Certificate in the summer of 2013. He then traveled to Salina, Kansas to continue his flight training at Kansas State Polytechnic. In 2016, he graduated with his Bachelor of Science and a minor in Safety. He obtained his Certified Flight Instructor and Certified Flight Instrument Instructor licenses while in school.

In his free time, Chris enjoys biking, playing soccer, and hiking. He also enjoy flying and watching airplanes, of course.

Chris is excited to be at Performance Aircraft now as a Flight Instructor, inspiring and enabling students as they make their aviation goals a reality.

We are thrilled to have Chris on board to help us achieve our mission of inspiring and enabling aviation dreams—one relationship, one aircraft, and one flight at a time.

  • I trusted the team at Performance Aircraft to help me identify an airplane that fit my mission, budget, and goals.  I'm happy to say that they exceeded all my expectations by keeping me informed throughout every step of the process.  You can trust that this team is not out to sell you an airplane but to be a lifelong aviation partner.  I would definitely use them again for selling or buying an aircraft.  Thank you!

  • As a first time buyer, I was nervous about the entire process–plane selection, negotiations, paperwork, and closing. After my first contact with Stacey at Performance Aircraft, I knew they were the right fit to help me. She quickly made me feel at ease with everything. Their website is positively the best and most comprehensive in its class.  The process was smooth and the plane was exactly as it was represented. I couldn't be happier!

Bill knew the value of airplanes as well as anyone I have met in the industry and I have been flying for over 30 years. You guys did a great job communicating with me throughout the process and kept the plane moving to closing. I was very pleased with everything.
