Emma Griffin - Certified Flight Instructor

I found my passion for aviation in high school when I went to NAS Fort Worth JRB and watched from the taxiway as the F-16s took off; after that day I planned to become an Air Force Pilot . Once I graduated high school, plans changed and I decided to get my license at Nationwide Aviation. At the age of 19, exactly 2 years after my first ever plane flight, I am now getting the chance to share my love for flying with others and help them achieve their aviation goals. I continue to try to achieve new goals inside and outside of aviation that will make me a more well-rounded person. And through every success and mistake, I try to learn and become a better person as well as pilot.
