Founder / President

Amy Labus-Olson

Amy founded Flight Training Technologies (FTT) in 2015, designed Skynotes in 2016 and launched the product in 2017. She is the product manager and designer as well as the content developer and manager. She is an educator by training with a Master of Education-Professional Development degree from UW-La Crosse. Amy holds a current commercial certificate with instrument and multi-engine ratings along with a CFII and remote pilot certificate. As a CFI, Amy has taught for a variety of part 61 and 141 flight schools throughout the Twin Cities and as an independent CFI.

Prior to her work as a CFI and entrepreneur, she taught for college and university intensive English language programs in the US and abroad. The idea for Skynotes came to fruition through her work as a college educator. As an educator, she used digital solutions to efficiently manage her students. When she became a CFI, she wanted that same level of professionalism in management in the flight training environment. Skynotes accomplishes that, and Amy and her team are diligently working to develop more!
