About Mauldin Aviation
Mauldin Aviation, LLC started operations October 2005 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The company is based at Moriarty Airport, Moriarty, New Mexico, 0E0, which is 30 miles east of
Albuquerque, close to I-40. Bonnie Mauldin, certified flight instructor and owner of the company, has a light sport manufactured 2008 Flight Design CTLS single-engine airplane.

She started her training as a student pilot with Bode Aviation at Albuquerque International Airport in 1997. After completing her training for private, instrument and commercial ratings, she went on to finish her flight instructor rating, CFI, in 1999, and began instructing for Bode Aviation. She earned the Gold Seal award from the FAA in 2001, for a high number of students passing their check rides on a first attempt.
In the next two years she added the flight instructor Instrument (CFII), and multi-engine ratings (MEI), in addition to Advanced Ground Instructor (AGI). For several years she continued her flight and ground instructing for Bode Aviation and Central New Mexico Community College, formerly called TVI.
During the summer of 2005 Bonnie earned her single-engine commercial seaplane rating in Kenwood, WA, in addition to receiving her tail-wheel endorsement at Dunkirk NY, in her uncle's 1943 Piper Cub J-3.
In the fall of 2005 Mauldin Aviation was formed, as she became an independent instructor for Eclipse Aviation's flying club, Sandia Flyers, giving both ground school classes and flight instruction in the club's Cirrus SR20, a technically advanced aircraft. She remained at Sandia Flyers until the summer of 2008, while simultaneously working for Lockheed Martin/ FAA automated flight service station as a flight service specialist (pilot weather briefer) from October 2007 to February 2009. The flight service station in Albuquerque closed its doors that month, due to down-sizing of the program.
Bonnie continues her love of flying with her Flight Design light sport airplane. In June 2010 she completed the FAA certification for Light Sport Airplane Repairman with a maintenance rating, LSRM-A, in Corning, CA.
