A skydiver since 1997; Rod discovered Powered Paragliding while on a trip to south Florida. In 2005 Rod and his best friend saw a pilot flying along I-75 and followed the pilot back to Fly By Ranch. Rod quickly signed up to train with world renowned instructor, Eric Dufour. From there the rest is history. Rod completed his PPG1, PPG2, PPG3, Instructor and Tandem USPPA ratings. He has been a part of competition and maneuvers clinics from the best instructors and pilots in the world. From 2009-2010 Rod spent nearly 6 months training with and observing veteran instructor Eric Dufour to acquire an extensive skill set and knowledge base needed to be a quality PPG instructor. In June of 2010 Rod received his instructor rating from Eric Dufour, which was then certified by the USPPA. Rod continues to improve his skills, both as a pilot and an instructor, by flying all of the gear he can get his hands on, traveling to new flying sites, flying in new regions, learning, observing and networking with other instructors and taking courses that improve his skill set.
