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.
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’m also the tailwheel instructor at Tom Wood Aviation.
Fluent with the Cirrus…and a host of others.
Here are some of the services I offer:
Tailwheel transition and endorsement
LSA, Private, Commercial, Instrument, Multi-engine and CFI training
Corporate call in co-pilot services
Instrument Proficiency Checks
Spin endorsements for CFI candidates
I’m a ATP rated pilot, instrument, SEL, SES, MEL, CFI/CFII/MEI with a class I medical. I’m also an instructor/check pilot/examiner/mission pilot for Civil Air Patrol with G1000 training.
Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you.
