Christian Yao serves as the Assistant Chief Instructor for Chennault Flying Service. He has been instructing since 2018 in the Las Vegas Valley and has experience managing large international flight programs. He is a 4th generation pilot as his great grandfather flew B-25 Mitchells, grandfather flew F-4 Phantoms, and father flew F-15C Eagles.
Before becoming a flight instructor he was a college student attaining a degree in Criminal Justice while being a volunteer firefighter, and operating wreckers in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (Ohhh you betcha!).
A passion outside of aviation is the great outdoors. You’ll find him out in the middle of nowhere hiking or jeep’n if he isn’t at the flight school.
