As the CEO of several medical practices and a geriatrician serving Central Florida’s seniors, Stephen Quaning, M.D. MBA has a hectic schedule.

But in 2013, he decided to fulfill his lifelong dream of obtaining his aviation license. Dr. Quaning needed a facility and instructor with a flexible schedule that would work with him one-on-one. Oren Shoshan was the perfect fit. After months of studying, training and logging the necessary ground and air hours with Oren, Dr. Quaning took his first solo flight in 2014.

Dr. Quaning has a true passion for flying and aviation. He loves learning new things about the craft and about the challenges that come with being a pilot. He views flying as a lifestyle and looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm and love of flying with Gold Seal Aviation customers. In addition, Dr. Quaning is the designated Aviation Medical Examiner (AME) at the Orlando Executive Airport, and is able to perform class 2 and 3 physicals for airmen.
