Adam Towne Aviation

Adam Towne, a Pan Am-trained pilot and full-time flight instructor since 2006, subscribes to the ideology of Wilbur Wright: "It is possible to fly without motors but not without knowledge and skill.” In this spirit, he leads custom instruction for students of all experience levels, from first-time flyers to out-of-practice pilots looking to refresh their skills. From his four-seat, 160 horsepower Piper Cherokee PA28-140 (which is also available for rental), Adam can take photographers skyward to capture landscapes, construction projects, or proof that birds run on tiny, feather-covered engines.
