Mike Reindl

Owner and Chief Instructor


Mike Reindl is a Certified Flight Instructor and Instrument Instructor with 8 years of experience teaching civilian and military aviators. He began his aviation career at the age of 11 in his home state of Wisconsin. His first instructors were former school teachers and his passion for educating others runs deep. His students have gone on to become combat aviators and Blue Angels! He has participated as a competitor in the National Intercollegiate Flying Association’s Safety and Flight Evaluation Conference, served on the Eastern Region’s FAA Safety Team, and pioneered the Naval Academy’s Flight Team and Powered Flight Program that are in existence today. His military experience includes three operational deployments with Patrol Squadron Sixteen (VP-16) and currently an instructor tour with Patrol Squadron Thirty (VP-30). Mike decided to start Tailsliders out of a desire to share his passion for flying and provide fellow aviators in the Jacksonville area with the confidence that comes from aerobatic, spin, and upset recovery training.
