Fred Williams-Idaho and Nevada


Fred soloed and owned his first aircraft at sixteen. At eighteen, he strapped his backpack into a '46 Taylorcraft and flew it to a meadow in the shadow of Mt Whitney for a weekend of hiking. When it was time to break camp, he tied the plane to a tree, hand-propped it, and flew home. Thus began a lifetime of adventure.

Later, at college, Fred taught a Mountain Rescue course and founded Moonstone, a brand of outdoor equipment and apparel that grew to worldwide distribution. Now, after forty plus years of outdoor and aviation experience, Fred is delighted to share the adventure of flying with both novices and the experienced aviators alike.

Sue Mosher-Colorado


The thing I am most proud of is to say I am a pilot.  The first time I tried to get my  Private in 1980, I quit after 3 lessons because of  bad instruction,  The 2nd  time I quit after a bad solo experience.  I tired again in 1984.  With the support of my new pilot husband and a patient instructor I passed my Private Pilot check ride in July 1985, one month after we bought our first airplane.  I now hold a Multi-engine ATP, Commercial SEL and SES license and passed my CFI in Feb 2001 to which I have added CFII and MEI certificates.  I have over 4300 hrs total time including 2300 hours of instruction.  I have extensive mountain flying experience throughout the Rocky Mountain West including two trips to Alaska. I have owned a Cherokee 235, Turbo Saratoga RG and a share in a Seneca III that  I currently teach out of in Steamboat Springs CO’s Bob Adams Field. Plus, I am a member of the local flying club. Also I earned my Remote Pilot License fall of 2018.

Jim Hudson



I’ve had a passion to fly since I was a kid, building and crashing model planes, pretending and fanaticizing that I was an airline pilot. I started pursuing my “dream” at a later stage in life after my kids left the next, and never made the airlines. After earning my private certification, I found that I wanted to pursue flying the Idaho backcountry (to support my other interest, fishing). I’ve taken three back-country clinics and have 19 years and 1500 hours flying into many of the Idaho backcountry strips. 

My interest in instruction began when my job as an engineer at HP was “downsized,” which gave me the opportunity to pursue this “retirement” career. 

I have been flying for 23 years, with 3550 total hours. Instructing 16 years and 2400 hours, mostly primary students and backcountry instruction. 

I was awarded the 2019 Distinguished CFI for AOPA Flight Experience Training Awards, 102 nationwide out of 2000 applicants surveyed. 

I’ve presented 12 “Peaks to Pavement” Backcountry Seminars for AOPA Air Safety this year, reaching 1650 attendees, mostly pilots. 

I’m also the Membership Director for T-Craft Aero Club in Nampa, Idaho. AOPA featured our club in the October 201 Club Connector feature on backcountry flying. 

I volunteer for Angel Flight West and was the Idaho Wing Leader 2003-2007. 

I have flown in the ACE program almost every year since 2000.

Barry Hancock Founder/Chief Pilot Pilot Makers Advanced Flight Academy CFI/CFI-A/MEI -  Barry has been instructing in high performance aircraft for over 15 years and has amassed nearly 5000 hours in that time.  His first experience instructing was as a warbird formation instructor.  As someone who has always enjoyed flying vintage tailwheel aircraft and been interested in improving safety, Barry founded Pilot Makers to bring back the fundamental skills that are required to safely overcome emergency Loss Of Control Inflight situations - an art and science that is largely untaught in today’s training environment.  Hancock is an active air show pilot in the T-6 and competition aerobatic pilot and coach. He spends much of his time upside down with students teaching them both the joy and skills of Upset Recovery, Spins, and Aerobatics.  Additionally, he serves on the Safety Board, is a Check Pilot, and is head of all formation training for the Commemorative Air Force in the US.  He is also a contract corporate pilot flying the world’s fastest business jet, the Citation X. Barry has flown nearly 40 different aircraft types and stays current in a variety of aircraft including the North American T-6, Extra 300, Pitts, Baron, Beech 18, Super Decathlon, Cessna 172/182, Bristell NG5, Grumman TBM Avenger and P-51 Mustang.  He and his wife Michelle reside in Lindon with 6 appropriately troublesome children.
