Cooper Buchanan – CFI, CFII,

Cooper is a native Texan that began his aviation journey in 2019. He attended the University of North Dakota where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics with a specialization in Commercial Aviation, and was a flight instructor at the University for just under a year. After graduating in the Fall of 2022 he moved back to Texas and joined the Rich Aviation team in May of 2023. He is a CFI/CFII with his multi-engine rating. When he’s not flying you can find him spending time with his friends and family, or hopefully skiing when the weather is cold!

Instructor very knowledgeable and his dedication to teaching apparent. The pace of the course was just about right with all questions answered, yet finished in reasonable time.
