Santosh Katkuri


Hey! My name is Santosh. As a flight instructor, I will make sure to provide a safe and exciting environment to learn in. Following a structured syllabus, I will make sure that you achieve your dream of becoming a pilot in the most safe and efficient way. I’m really excited to have you as a student and show you the enjoyment that I have had since I started flying. I had my first flight lesson right here at Palo Alto airport. I did all my private pilot training with Advantage Aviation. I got my instrument and commercial multi-engine license in Texas and came back to California to get my CFI. I have loved flying ever since I could remember. The time that I caught the aviation bug was when I was 4 years old and got to sit in my uncle’s fighter jet and have loved aviation with the same passion ever since. In my free time, you can catch me hiking all the cool trails in the bay area or playing ice hockey.
