About Founder Richard Sprott

Richard Sprott is an experienced aircraft maintainer and award-winning instructor. He has over 10,000 teaching hours, and holds a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Occupational Safety and Health from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. 

Sprott began his 15+ year career working on aircraft when he enlisted in the United States Air Force as an F-16 Crew Chief. Demonstrating his aptitude and versatility by excelling on the flight line, phase dock, and aircraft cannibalization dock, Sprott was awarded the coveted Leo Marquez Award for his excellence in aircraft maintenance and was hand-selected to become an instructor at Sheppard AFB, Texas.

In his three years as an aviation maintenance instructor, Sprott developed a passion for teaching. When he was later deployed to Korea, he continued to hone his craft, working in the fighter wing’s training flight, for which he was awarded Instructor of the Year.

Later on his Korea tour, Sprott was promoted to Development and Instruction Element Chief. In addition to teaching courses, he managed a team of instructors and developed full curriculums for aircraft maintenance students, including courses, tests, and lesson plans.

As a devoted husband and father of two sons, Sprott has firsthand knowledge of the balancing act involved in working a demanding career while still making time for professional development and a thriving home life. His vision for Sprott Learning: Aeronautics includes creating opportunities for aircraft maintenance workers to further their education so they can soar both professionally and personally.
