Rod is a professional speaker, his presentations include topics as diverse as Risk Assessment, Defensive Flying and Handling In-flight Emergencies. His non-aviation topics include: Safety Awareness programs, Humor as a Communication Tool and The Lost Art of Thinking. Additionally, he is known for his rapid fire, humorous banquet presentations.

Rod was named the 1991 Western Region Flight Instructor of the Year. Rod holds all fixed-wing (powered) flight instructor ratings as well as an airline transport pilot license.

For six years, Rod contributed to and coanchored ABC’s Wide World of Flying. He is AOPA’s National CFI spokesman and a National Accident Prevention Counselor appointed by the FAA in Washington D. C. Rod is the flight instructor voice on Microsoft's Flight Simulator starting with the 2000 version through the X version and he wrote the flight lesson tutorials for the textbook that accompanies the software. He is also an instructor on Cessna's Computer-Based Private Pilot CD-ROM and the author of five aviation books, four DVDs, a 14 CD audio album, a Private Pilot Course on 30 audio CDs and a CFI image CD. You can read his monthly column in AOPA Pilot magazine as well as in Flight Training Magazine.

Rod’s eclectic interests are reflected by his equally varied academic credentials. He holds degrees in Aviation Science and Psychology. Rod believes you must take time to exercise or you’ll have to take time to be sick. Holding black belts in the Korean disciplines of Tae Kwon Do and Hapkido as well over 20 years of experience in Gracie Jujitsu, he gets his exercise from practicing and teaching martial arts. He also runs 20 miles a week and claims it’s uphill both ways. Someone once said that he's so excited about flying it takes two glideslopes to bring him down.  www.rodmachado.com
