AOPA Writes About Our Chief!

Something seems very right with the universe. Amelia Reid founded her flight school, Amelia Reid Aviation (now AeroDynamic Aviation) in 1960 because she wanted to have time for her son. Jennifer Delp Mallet gave up a career with the airlines and became a flight instructor for the exact same reason!

Fifty five years after its founding, Jen is now the Chief Instructor and co-owner of AeroDynamic Aviation, continuing the tradition of good old fashioned stick and rudder flight training. Jen loves flying and teaching in old taildraggers as much as in the latest glass cockpit carbon fiber wonder planes.

AeroDynamic has now opened up branches at Salinas and Monterey airports. We have hosted an AOPA Rusty Pilot Seminar at Monterey, and we are working with AOPA and Salinas Airport to help make the AOPA regional fly in a success in May.
