Joanne Hernandez

Commercial Pilot and instructor

Joanne Hernandez is a senior Flight Instructor at Brampton Flight Centre that has been teaching components of the RPAS program since 2017.

Her interest in flying began at a young age, albeit quite lackluster, as a little girl, laying on the grass, looked up at the sky, pointed and said to her friends “that’d be cool, I want to do that” as an airliner flew overhead.

In 2017, she became a flight instructor at Brampton Flight Centre where she has been teaching people of all ages the joys and frustrations of flying. Although her primary focus was on manned aviation, she also began teaching the same rules, skills, and principles to those flying unmanned aircraft in RPAS ground school courses that same year and has been doing it since then.

Currently, she is a Class 2 Flight Instructor finishing up the last of the requirements for her Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL).
