Robert Illian

I was born in Glendale, Ca and grew up and graduated in La Canada.  I received my private pilot certificate while still in high school and have been flying ever since.  I went to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in AZ and earned my bachelors degree in Aeronautical Science in 2003.  I became a Flight Instructor at Vista Air in 2003 also.  I have flown over 5,000 hours.  I teach Private, Instrument, Commercial, CFI and Garmin 1000 transition courses.  I am a CFII/AGII with a Gold Seal.  In my spare time I enjoy ice hockey, and I am in an adult league with one of Vista’s long time Customers.  I enjoy trips to Mexico with my ATV and sandrail.  I am a proud new Uncle of my sister‘s baby boy.  I enjoy spending time with my family deep sea fishing, snowboarding and wakeboarding.  I am also a certified EMT for the State of Ca and Nationally with NREMT.
