Passion Meets Purpose for Aviation Instructor Peter Knox | UTI

Peter Knox, a dedicated aviation instructor and coordinator of the Spirit lab, isn't just a teacher. He's been described as a passionate mentor, a guiding hand and a source of inspiration for many in the field of aviation. His beginnings were like his now-students, striving to make a mark in the industry.*As a graduate of the same program he now teaches, Peter has an intimate understanding of the journey his students are undertaking. “I’m fresh out of the field so I have a lot of experience. I try to relate that to the students and just try to be there for them,” he shares. “I know what it’s like being here, going to school here, dealing with life outside of here – it can be a lot.”Although teaching was an unintentional transition, it led to a newfound love. “I just love helping. I feel that this is part of my purpose here,” he says with conviction.Watch the video to learn more about Peter’s story and how he supports his students!For more information regarding aviation training programs at Universal Technical Institute, visit about our location in Canton, Michigan: additional information on specific courses, tuition and admissions, see the course catalogs at more examples of how Universal Technical Institute has shaped the careers of many of today's technicians, visit find the nearest UTI school near you, visit stay up-to-date with some of the latest news regarding UTI, join us on social media.Facebook: Twitter: Instagram:*UTI is an educational institution and cannot guarantee employment or salary.
