Delta Air Lines 777 Pilot
Hi, I’m Spencer Mamber and I’ve been flying and instructing for more years than most of you reading this. 😉 I’m a former USAF Instructor pilot with a ATP, CFIIA, CFIME and Single Engine SEA. I also have commercial privileges in the Boeing 707/720 & Rotorcraft Helicopters. What I enjoy most is what I call Primary Instructing, taking a pedestrian and turn them into a Private Pilot. My primary vocation is being a RE/MAX Realtor, so the number of students I take on IS limited. I am an aircraft owner and after more than 8,300 hours, I still love to fly. Welcome to Centennial Flyers!

Evan received his Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering and his private pilot license in the mid 1970’s. He had a varied career, retiring from law enforcement aviation in 2017. His retirement provides extremely flexible scheduling and the ability to “give back” to the aviation community as a Part 61 instructor. His patient instruction emphasizes tailoring the learning process to the novice pilot for the most safe, effective, and efficient training. His passion for aviation is contagious and motivating.
