Meet your instructor: Devon Kruger

1. What is your favourite part of instructing?

Being able to apply what I have learnt over the many years / hours of experience and adapt it to each individual student, to develop them to their highest potential.

2. Give the student an idea of what makes you get up in the morning to instruct?

I am one of the fortunate people that jumps out of bed at 4am. What helps me do this with a smile on my face is knowing that I’m giving back to an industry that I love, by developing the best of the best students and/or instructors.

3. Tell us about your flying experience?

I have logged over 5000 Hours, on a variety of aircraft. At the moment I mainly fly the SIAI-Marchetti SF.260.

4. Please tell us about your greatest achievement in aviation.

Being certified as 1 of 2 instructors in the world on the Paramount Aerospace Industries developed AHRLAC reconnaissance & light attack aircraft. Flying my first 3 ship close formation display at an airshow.

5. What advice would you give to future pilots?

Develop your people skills and relationships within the industry, they will be worth more to you than any conversion, flight hour or accreditation.

 

Give the student an idea of how you motivate and challenge them with a phrase or couple of sentences they can think over.

 

Well very simple, I’m part of the “old school” instructional guild. I’m only interested in training passionate individuals that love what they do, know what they want and only need someone to help them navigate the way forward.

 

“If your not early your late”

 

“Flying can start at 4am”

 

I will make you the best of best but in order to do so, you need to give me your best.
