This is my dad. Taught me to fly in 1971.

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 occasionally fly the Beechcraft B350 Super King Air

I fly the Cessna  310, 340, 421 and 414 on a corporate basis.


I also teach tailwheel.  My passion!


Fluent with the Cirrus…and a host of others.
