ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Hello, my name is John Morris. I am the founder of ACFT Services, LLC. My professional aviation career started briefly with the FAA as an Air Traffic Control trainee followed by aircraft ownership / private flying, flight training for my ATP and Flight Instructor Ratings and then for 2 years, as a ground/simulator/flight instructor at Miami-Dade Community College Aviation program.
February 1993 I was hired by Simcom Training Centers as a Navajo Instructor. In time I was teaching all of the piston Twin Cessna’s and piston/turbine Twin Piper courses offered, except the 400LS, and in 1998 I became the Piper Navajo Program Coordinator.
May 1999 I was offered the opportunity to join the Pilatus PC12 program. To be honest, prior to flying the PC12 I would “diss” the PC12 while teaching my twin courses because it was a “single”, even with the venerable PT6. That changed shortly after I studied and flew the Pilatus, hook, line and sinker. Love this plane!
Summer 2000 I became the PC12 Program Coordinator and continued in that position (along with ground/sim/flight instructing the PC12 and the twins I was qualified for) until I resigned from Simcom April 2007 to start ACFT Services.
While working for Miami‐Dade through Simcom I also acquired ATP Single/Multi‐Engine Land, Advanced Instrument/Ground Instructor, CFI‐Aircraft Single/Multi‐engine Land and Instrument, Flight Engineer‐Turbojet and Aircraft Dispatcher ratings.
