US Gyroplane Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs)

The following is a list of the names and locations of US light-sport gyroplane instructors who are also Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs). You can click on the name of an instructor to view more detailed data for that instructor such as contact information, airman and instructor certifications, and other information.

To make it easier to find the locations of these instructors, state codes (for example, TX) are displayed in red. Instructors are presumed to offer training services at the locations listed. In some cases, an instructor may have identified other locations where training services are offered. If so, an asterick appears with the state code or country. In those cases, you can click on the name of the instructor and find those locations in "Other Training Locale(s)".

This list is provided for general information and should not be considered authoritative nor absolutely current.
