Welcome to Indy CFI.

My name is Robert Haynes and I began flying at the age of 15 and soloed on my 16th birthday.  Flying is a passion of mine and I love every minute of it.  While my career was in Air Traffic Control, my love for flying has spanned 4 decades.

circa 1971

Most of my time is in light single engine aircraft but I also have time in the Citation, King Air and MU2.  My primary love is tailwheel flying.  Living in Alaska for 19 years, tailwheel flying was a way of life.  We would make a runway out of a dry river bed, gravel bar or mountain top…if we were on wheels.  On floats, that’s a whole different and wonderful world.

I currently am a SIC on a King Air 350.  It’s an amazingly capable aircraft.

I fly the Cessna 310, 340 and 414 on a corporate basis.


I’m also the tailwheel instructor at Tom Wood Aviation.


Here are some of the services I offer:

Tailwheel transition and endorsement
LSA, Private, Commercial, Instrument and CFI training
Corporate call in co-pilot services
Ferry services
Instrument Proficiency Checks
Flight Reviews

I’m a ATP rated pilot, instrument, SEL, SES, MEL, CFI/CFII with a class I medical.  I’m also a instructor/check pilot for Civil Air Patrol with G1000 training.

Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you.
