Emmanouil “Manolis” Karahalios

Founder & Mentor

Manolis has an extended aviation experience in Military and Civilian training of more than 20 years. His passion for mentoring the new generations of aviators keeps him inspired and he feels the responsibility of transferring his experience to the beginners in flying. Manolis’ dream is to change the culture of aviation training from an Instructor Oriented one to a Student Oriented that will use modern mentoring methods and leave behind the old-fashioned flight training techniques.

After his 3 display seasons as a Demo Pilot in  the Hellenic AF F-16 Demo Team “ZEUS”, he’s been honoured to become Member of the Board of the European Airshow Council, with the aim to promote safety and professionalism in the Air Shows. Manolis was the Display Director of the Athens Flying Week Airshow in Greece and nowadays he’s Member of the Organising Committee and the Display Flight Committee, acting as an Assistant of the Display Director.

FlyForte is the tool for Manolis to blend his experience and provide professional services to organisations and individuals around the aviation world.
