As a kid I was always around airplanes because of my Dad working for the airlines so naturally I wanted to grow up and join the same industry. In 2017 I began my journey at Centennial Flight Centre and within a few years completed my PPL, CPL & Flight Instructor Rating at Centennial & now passing on the same excellent training onto new students as a Class 4 Instructor. Fun Fact: I completed my first solo, ppl, cpl and Flight Instructor flight tests on C-GIYT
I have always had an obsession with airplanes growing up and knew from a young age that there is nothing else I’d rather pursue than a career in aviation. I started my journey in 2020 and did all my training at Centennial. After finishing my instructor rating, I now have the privilege of sharing my passion with students by helping them achieve their goals in aviation. Outside of flying I’m an avid fitness enthusiast, constantly seeking ways to improve physical performance.
Kathrine started training at Centennial in 2017 and has since completed all her licenses and ratings here. She always had an interest in education and especially the technical aspects of aviation, leading her also to a mechanical engineering degree. When not flight instructing, she works in an engineering role in the aerospace industry. Kat is excited to share her enthusiasm for all aspects of aviation.
