Summer Simmons

Flight Instructor

Brief info

"Hi, I am Summer and I been flying now for 2 and a half years. My step-father is a pilot and he introduced me to flying in 2018 and I been in love with it ever since. I’m outgoing and a very active person and I play sports and I volunteer when I can. I was proud when I finished flight school and I got my CFI license. Now I’m a flight instructor and I want to motivate women and show them that they can do it as well."
