Mark founder Mark Robidoux is an instrument rated pilot and has been flying since 1995. Before starting, Mark spent 18 years in high-tech, working for two of the world's leading software companies. He held a variety of sales, marketing and executive management positions during his career.
While studying for his instrument rating, Mark noticed there was little training available for pilots on the internet. He was convinced there was an opportunity to combine his passion for aviation with his knowledge and experience in web technologies.

In the fall of 2005, Mark left his high-tech career to create a world class pilot training website. His idea grew into the web site we have today.
