The founder and owner of Modine Aviation is also the primary flight instructor and aviation consultant.

Amon "CJ" Modine, is a retired Paramedic from the Fire Department of New York (FDNY*EMS). He was an educator at the Fire Academy, where he oversaw the development of Emergency Medical Services Training for young candidate EMTs, Paramedics and Firefighters. Like many others in the FDNY, he responded to the World Trade Center attack on 9/11. He survived the collapse of the second tower.

Amon, now retired from the Department, lives on Central Florida's Space Coast with his family.

To ensure you get the best training possible, we collaborate with other flight instructors who have similar flight training experience, to conduct stage checks and pre-checkride evaluations.
