Instructor - Troy Asher

Troy grew up in Orange County and joined the United States Air Force after graduating high school. It was in the Air Force that Troy discovered a passion for flying during his tenure as a C-130 Loadmaster. In 2016, Troy continued his aviation career when he learned to fly helicopters with a transition to fixed-wing aircraft in 2020. Prior to joining the OC Flight Lessons team, Troy worked for the Walt Disney Company for over 25 years. Troy looks forward to a career in cargo operations with the goal of joining either UPS or Fedex. Troy’s advice for potential and new students is to commit to the training with all that you have. Successful students are ones who study daily and commit to flying as consistently as possible. Learning to fly can be stressful and challenging but in the end it is extremely rewarding!
