Hi, I’m Dan Ramsey, the author of dozens of books on aviation as well as a publisher at Mulligan Press. In my spare time, I’m also an Airport Manager at a community airport in northern California to help fund my flying habit.

This website was built to help you discover your wings and to save you money while you’re learning to fly. It’s an expensive journey — one I know well. But it doesn’t have to be. On this site I show you all the tricks to make the journey less costly (and hopefully a lot more fun).

So thanks for visiting Frugal Pilot. I hope the information you find here is helpful, actionable, and ultimately gives you the confidence and knowledge you need to take to the skies. Best of luck!

Dan Ramsey
