Lance Dixon

Hi my name is Lance Dixon, I'm a certified flight instructor, and owner and operator of dixon aviation. We started up just prior to Covid, which shut everything down. I have been flying for the past 17 years. I enjoy teaching, especially ground school. I care more about your safety then I do running you through the program. My other CFl went to the top school and I chose to learn on my own and pay as I went. You can learn the same stuff here, that you would at a 150k school, and do it at your pace. We only ask that once you start, you study and make it to the finish line.

Yi Chen

Hey, My name is Yi Chen. I was born and raised in China. Ever since I was young, I have always been interested in Aviation. I came to the United States to pursue my dream and attend the University of North Dakota because of its excellent reputation. I enjoyed my time at UND because I achieved the first step of my aviation career. After graduation, I finished my CFI course at the UND flight training center in Phoenix, AZ. I recently obtained my CFI, and with my new qualification, I am so excited to share my passion with you and help you succeed in your own aviation goal. I am beyond honored to receive a job offer here at Dixon Aviation. My experiences from the flight training I received from UND will prepare me for serving you with excellence, and I am ready to work hard to make that happen.
We will see you up there!
