About the Professor


I currently serve as Assistant Professor of Aviation, the Assistant Chair of Flight Academics, and the Part 141 Chief Ground Instructor at the University of North Dakota's (UND) John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences. I have experience as an airline pilot, turbine flight instructor, and stage check airman and have operated various aircraft including the DeHavilland Canada Dash-8-100 and Dash-8-300, Beechcraft King Air C90GTi, and Pilatus PC-12. Currently, I teach a variety of courses including IFR Regulations and Procedures, Flight Instructor Certification, and Advanced Aircraft Operations.

I possess a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics, a Master of Science in Aviation, and a College Teaching Certificate, all from UND. I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Education in Educational Practice and Leadership with an emphasis in Instructional Design and Technology. My aeronautical qualifications include an Airline Transport Pilot certificate with multiengine land and DHC-8 ratings and a Flight Instructor certificate with single-engine, multiengine, and instrument ratings. I have been published as a contributor in various peer-reviewed academic journals and aviation periodicals.

A native of Norfolk, UK, I enjoy traveling with my wife and son. Additionally, I enjoy researching aviation history, finding opportunities to fly, and working on various projects.

Assessment & Grading

This course consists of a series of assignments and assessments to assist you in achieving the course learning objectives/outcomes.

Block Exams (3) and Final Exam (1)

In accordance with the FAA-approved TCO, an exam will be issued upon completion of each block of training and at the conclusion of the course. Each block exam is worth approximately 17% of your total grade in the course. In accordance with the TCO and department policy, you must score a 76% or higher to pass the exam. If your score is less than 76%, you will be required to conduct a retake exam. Please be advised that the retake exam score will not be calculated into your cumulative course grade. Only the first-attempt score will be calculated into the cumulative course grade. If a student is unable to achieve a 76% or higher after two attempts at the respective exam, a review board may be convened consisting of the academic instructor, student, and Assistant Chair of Flight Academics to develop strategies for success.

The final exam is a cumulative assessment of all 3 blocks of training and is worth 20% of your cumulative course grade. In accordance with the TCO and department policy, you must score a 76% or higher to pass the exam. A retake will only be issued at the discretion of the academic instructor. The academic instructor has the authority to deny a retake of the final exam. If a retake is permitted, only the first-attempt score will be calculated into the cumulative course grade.

Exams must be completed during the regularly scheduled class session unless alternate arrangements are made with the academic instructor. At the discretion of the academic instructor, students who do not complete an exam during the regularly scheduled class session without prior notification may be subjected to a 10% grade penalty applied to that exam.

All retakes and make-up exams must be completed within 7 days of the original date of the exam or prior to the subsequent exam (whichever occurs first). Failure to comply will result in a grade of 0% for the respective exam. It is the student’s responsibility to arrange with the academic instructor for a retake or make-up exam.

Quizzes and Assignments

A total of 80 “points” are available in this category. A quizzes/assignments grade will be determined by taking the total number of points earned divided by 80 and multiplying by 100. As an example, a student who earns 50 points would receive a quizzes/assignments grade of 62.5%. Points will be gained from the following:

ALL BLOCKS: “Build-a-Test” Questions (3)

The objective of this is to develop your assessment skills and reinforce your understanding of the content. For each block exam (3 total), each student is expected to develop and submit 1 test question prior to the exam. Each submission must include any relevant diagrams or other information required to answer. A sample of these student-submitted questions will be incorporated into the respective block exam. Worth 10 points each (30 points total).


The objective of this assignment is to apply your knowledge and understanding of the IFR flight plan. You are expected to file a simulated IFR flight plan on Blackboard using accurate information for a local training flight with a UND Piper Archer. Worth 20 points.


The objective of this assignment is to apply your knowledge and understanding of departure and arrival procedures. You will be required to respond to a series of scenario-based questions regarding a SID and a STAR. Worth 30 points.

BLOCK 8 ASSIGNMENT: Cross-Country Scenario

The objective of this assignment is to apply your knowledge and understanding of IFR cross-country procedures. You will be expected to plan an IFR cross-country flight with a method of your choice (paper or electronic) using established criteria. Additionally, you will be required to respond to a series of questions about your selected route. Worth 30 points.


Each lesson includes a 5 to 10 question quiz intended to assess your knowledge of the content and prepare you for the respective block exam. These quizzes are intended to serve as low-stakes formative assessments, with opportunities to review your performance and the correct answers to each question after submission. Worth 5-10 points each.

Flight Activity

Flight training is an integrated element of this course. Inability to maintain adequate progress or performance in either flight training or the academic class may result in failure of the course. Flight activity is worth 4% of your cumulative course grade and will be distributed as follows:

  • Pass stage 129 oral on first attempt                 1%
  • Pass stage 129 flight on first attempt               1%
  • Pass stage 131 oral on first attempt                 1%
  • Pass stage 131 flight on first attempt               1%

Course Evaluation

Near the end of the semester, you will be asked to complete an online course evaluation form (SELFI). Your feedback on the course is extremely valuable to me. I read my students’ comments carefully and use them to improve the course the next time I teach it.

  • When the time comes, please let me know which aspects of the course helped you learn—and which aspects might be modified to help future students learn more effectively. 
  • Please note that the course evaluations are anonymous and that I won’t see the results until after the grades for the course are submitted, allowing you to provide honest and constructive feedback. 

And if you have feedback to offer before the end of the semester, please let me know.

Course Policies

Late Work

All assignments must be submitted by the respective due date. The acceptance of late assignments is at the discretion of the instructor, provided that you contact the instructor before the due date. All requirements for this course must be completed during the course dates, with the exception of flight activity which must be completed in accordance with the policy outlined in this document under “Satisfactory Progress”.

Instructor Responsibilities and Feedback

  • The academic instructor will strive to provide feedback on all assignments and activities within 7 days of the due date.

  • The academic instructor will be available via email to answer questions, provide feedback, and offer advice.

  • The academic instructor will treat all students with respect.

  • The academic instructor will treat all students equally in accordance with the University of North Dakota’s non-discrimination policies.

  • The academic instructor will carefully consider factors that may impact a student’s academic performance. Please be advised that, due to the regulatory nature of this course, exceptions and extensions to certain policies may be unavailable.


The FAA-approved TCO requires each student to be presented with all material covered in any 14 CFR 141 flight course. To comply with this regulation, each student must attend every scheduled session. Absences are only permitted for valid reasons such as illness or unexpected situations that demand your attention. If a student is not present, it is the student’s responsibility to conduct a make-up briefing with a qualified flight instructor. It is the student’s responsibility to submit a signed ground certification (make-up) form for all missed sessions prior to the respective block exam. Failure to meet this requirement will prohibit you from taking that block exam at the scheduled time. This will result in a grade penalty of 10% applied to the block exam. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS.

Tardiness is both unprofessional and distracting. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each session. Failure to be present at this time may be considered an absence which would require a review of the recording as described above. If you have a legitimate reason for being tardy, please discuss with the academic instructor. Consistent tardiness will result in a virtual meeting with the academic instructor to discuss professionalism. As an aviator, you have a professional responsibility to plan wisely for an on-time arrival.

Academic Standards

Each student must achieve a cumulative course grade of 76% or higher to pass the course.

All aviation students are required to maintain a cumulative, institutional, and departmental GPA of 2.6 or higher. The 2.6 GPA is required to be admitted as an aviation major, to maintain status as an aviation major, to enroll in aviation courses numbered 200 or higher, and to graduate with an aviation degree.

Students are expected to maintain scholastic honesty. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to cheating on an exam, plagiarism, and collusion. For detailed policy statements and procedures dealing with scholastic dishonesty, see Appendix B of the UND Code of Student Life.

Students must comply with all Aviation Department policies, especially those related to repetition of aviation courses, petitions, grade grievances, and student disposition.  These can be reviewed at https://aero.und.edu/aviation/current-students/policies.html.

Satisfactory Progress

If you are unable to complete flight training within the designated semester, the classroom instructor may issue a grade of “SP” (satisfactory progress) if your classroom performance and flight progress is deemed adequate.

In accordance with departmental policy and the FAA-approved TCO, students who are issued a grade of “SP” must complete all associated flight training (including the final stage check) within 12 calendar months from the first day of the respective ground school. The deadline for this class is January 31, 2023. If you are unable to achieve this, the “SP” will convert to an “F”. Once flight training is completed (within the 12 calendar month timeframe), the “SP” will be converted to a letter grade in accordance with academic performance and earned flight points.

University of North Dakota Policies & Resources

Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is a serious matter, and any deviations from appropriate behavior will be dealt with strongly. At the discretion of the professor, situations of concern may be dealt with as a scholastic matter or a disciplinary matter.

As a scholastic matter, the professor has the discretion to determine appropriate penalties for the student’s workload or grade, but the situation may be resolved without involving many individuals. An alternative is to treat the situation as a disciplinary matter, which can result in suspension from the University, or have lesser penalties. Be aware that I view this as a very serious matter and will have little tolerance and/or sympathy for questionable practices. A student who attempts to obtain credit for work that is not their own (whether that be on a paper, quiz, homework assignment, exam, etc.) will likely receive a failing grade for that item of work, and at the professor’s discretion, may also receive a failing grade in the course. For more information read the Code of Student Life.

Access and Opportunity, Disability Support, & Medical Services

The University of North Dakota is committed to providing equal access to students with documented disabilities. To ensure access to this class and your program, please contact Disability Services for Students (DSS) to engage in a confidential discussion about accommodations for the classroom and clinical settings. Accommodations are not provided retroactively. Students are encouraged to register with DSS at the start of their program. More information can be obtained by email UND.dss@UND.edu or by phone at 701.777.2664.


UND is committed to maintaining a safe learning environment while providing quality learning experiences for our students. COVID-19’s continued presence within our UND community may necessitate changes in classroom management as the academic year progresses. As such, UND asks students and instructors to be flexible when necessary to promote a safe environment for learning. Please do not attend an in-person class or lab if you are feeling ill, particularly if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have been directed by health professionals to quarantine or isolate. If you are not able to attend class or lab, please notify your instructor as soon as possible and discuss options for making up any missed work in order to ensure your ability to succeed in the course. If you will have an extended absence due to serious illness or other uncontrollable circumstances, you may request an absence notification through the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. Similarly, if your instructor is ill they may need to cancel class or temporarily move your course to online delivery to ensure that you are able to complete the course successfully.  Instructors may require students to wear masks in the classroom or in the laboratory as a preventative measure designed to facilitate uninterrupted classroom engagement and to facilitate health and safety in the classroom.   If your instructor does require masks in class or in a laboratory, you are expected to comply with that request.

UND also strongly encourages all members of the University community, including students, to get vaccinated, seek out testing when needed, and model positive behavior both on- and off-campus to foster a healthy and safe learning environment for all students. Individuals who would like to discuss disability accommodations regarding masks should contact the Disability Services for Students (DSS) office at 701.777.2664 or UND.dss@UND.edu. Individuals who are unable to wear a mask due to a sincerely held religious belief should contact the UND Equal Opportunity and Title IX Office at 701.777.4171 or UND.EO.TitleIX@UND.edu.

Religious Accommodations

UND offers religious accommodations, which are reasonable changes in the academic environment that enable a student to practice or observe a sincerely held religious belief without undue hardship on the University. Examples include time for prayer or the ability to attend religious events or observe a religious holiday. To request an accommodation, complete the student religious accommodation request form. If you have any questions, you may contact the Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office.

Pregnancy Accommodations

Students who need assistance with academic adjustments related to pregnancy or childbirth may contact the Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office or Academic Affairs to learn about your options. Additional information and services may be found at Pregnancy Resources.

Notice of Nondiscrimination

It is the policy of the University of North Dakota that no person shall be discriminated against because of race, religion, age, color, gender, disability, national origin, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, veteran’s status, or political belief or affiliation and the equal opportunity and access to facilities shall be available to all. Concerns regarding Title IX, Title VI, Title VII, ADA, and Section 504 may be addressed to Donna Smith, Assistant Vice President for Equal Opportunity & Title IX and Title IX/ADA Coordinator, 102 Twamley Hall, 701.777.4171, UND.EO.TitleIX@UND.edu or the Office for Civil Rights, U.S. Dept. of Education, 230 S. Dearborn St., 37th Floor, Chicago, IL 60604 or any other federal agency.

Reporting of Discrimination, Harassment, or Sexual Misconduct

If you or a friend has experienced sexual misconduct, such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking, please contact the Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office or UND’s Title IX Coordinator, Donna Smith, for assistance: 701.777.4171; donna.smith@UND.edu; or visit the Title IX webpage. You may also contact the Equal Opportunity & Title IX office if you or a friend has experienced discrimination or harassment based on a protected class, such as race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, pregnancy, marital or parental status, veteran's status, or political belief or affiliation.

Faculty Reporting Obligations Regarding Discrimination, Harassment, or Sexual Misconduct

It is important for students to understand that faculty are required to share with UND’s Title IX Coordinator any incidents of sexual misconduct or of discrimination or harassment based on a protected class that they become aware of, even if those incidents occurred in the past or are disclosed as part of a class assignment. This does not mean an investigation will occur if the student does not want that, but it does allow UND to provide resources to help the student continue to be successful at UND. If you have been impacted by discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct, you can find information about confidential support services on the Equal Opportunity & Title IX webpage..

UND Cares Program

How to Seek Help When in Distress

We know that while college is a wonderful time for most students, however, some students may struggle or have issues that arise. You may experience students in distress on campus, in your classroom, in your home, and within residence halls. Distressed students may initially seek assistance from faculty, staff members, their parents, and other students. In addition to the support we can provide to each other, there are also professional support services available to students through the Dean of Students and University Counseling Center. Both staffs are available to consult with you about getting help or providing a friend with the help that he or she may need. For more additional information, please visit the UND Cares Program Webpage.

How to Recognize When a Student is in Distress

The term “distressed” can mean any of the following:

  • Student has significant changes in eating, sleeping, grooming, spending, or other daily activities.
  • Student has cut off or minimized contact with family or friends.
  • Student has significant changes in performance or involvement in academics, sports, extracurricular, or social activities.
  • Student describes problems (missing class, not remembering, destructive behavior) that result from experiences with drinking or drugs.
  • Student is acting withdrawn, volatile, tearful, etc.
  • Student is acting out of character or different than usual.
  • Student is talking explicitly about hopelessness or suicide.
  • Student has difficulty concentrating or difficulty carrying on a normal conversation.
  • Student has excessive dependence on others for company or support.
  • Student reports feeling out of control of one’s emotions, thoughts, or behaviors.

Land Acknowledgement Statement

Today, the University of North Dakota rests on the ancestral lands of the Pembina and Red Lake Bands of Ojibwe and the Dakota Oyate - presently existing as composite parts of the Red Lake, Turtle Mountain, White Earth Bands, and the Dakota Tribes of Minnesota and North Dakota. We acknowledge the people who resided here for generations and recognize that the spirit of the Ojibwe and Oyate people permeate this land. As a university community, we will continue to build upon our relations with the First Nations of the State of North Dakota - the Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation, Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Nation, Spirit Lake Nation, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.

Additional Resources

It is my goal to foster an environment of mutual respect in which everyone feels comfortable voicing their opinions, sharing their stories, and learning about potentially heavy or personally relevant material. If, at any point, you feel like the information covered in this class elicits thoughts, feelings, or concerns that you would like to discuss further, don’t hesitate to reach out to me, or the UND Counseling Center (701-777-2127).

Further, if you experience extenuating circumstances, sexual violence, identity-based harm, or any other personal crisis during the semester, don’t hesitate to reach out to me so we can provide academic assistance and help you in this course, and put you in contact with the appropriate resources and services (if needed).

Resolution of Problems

Should a problem occur, you should speak to your instructor first. If the problem continues to be unresolved, go to the department chair, and next to the college Dean. Should the problem persist, you have the right to go to the Provost next, and then to the President.

UND Cares about Your Success

Important information is available to you through Starfish, which is an online system used to help students be successful. When an instructor observes student behaviors or concerns that may impede academic success, the instructor may raise a flag that notifies the student of the concern and/or refer the student to their academic advisor or UND resource. Please pay attention to these emails and take the recommended actions. They are sent to help you be successful!

Starfish also allows you to (1) schedule appointments with various offices and individuals across campus, (2) request help on a variety of topics, and (3) search and locate information on offices and services at UND.

You can log into Starfish by clicking on Logins on the UND homepage and then selecting Starfish. A link to Starfish is also available in Blackboard once you have signed in.
