Blase Dombrowski joined the Gulf Coast Aviation team as a full-time flight instructor with his CFI, CFII, and MEI ratings after moving to the New Orleans area in September of 2017.
Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Blase completed his private pilot license at Capitol Airport in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He then spent a year as a flight instructor with ATP Flight School in Daytona Beach, Florida. Prior to making the move to focus full-time on his aviation career, Blase also completed a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As a flight instructor and pilot with Gulf Coast Aviation, Blase brings to the table a broad range of experience working with students from a variety of backgrounds, as well as a strong passion for aviation.
Blase lives in Metairie, Louisiana with his wife and their three (yes, three!) dogs. Aside from aviation, his interests and favorite activities include hiking with his wife and dogs, cooking delicious food (or finding it somewhere in NOLA), competitive shooting, and riding and driving (and often fixing or restoring) motorcycles and classic cars.
