Rick Bellofatto

CFI, CFII, MEI, ATP, CSIP (Cirrus Standardized Instructor Pilot)

Rick started flying when he was young, having to sit on phone books to see out the windshield. He has made a little progress since then, both in height and ability. The adventure and reward flying offers is truly unique and always keeps Rick coming back for more. He particularly enjoys the challenges of instrument and aerobatic flight, and is one of the Beverly Flight Center’s aerobatics specialty instructors. When he’s not flying airplanes, Rick also enjoys jumping out of them. With
a parachute, that is. He is an avid skydiver. He also enjoys SCUBA diving and traveling in general. Rick’s goal is to learn about all aspects of aviation.
