Celia Garcia | Flight Instructor
Certificates & Ratings Held: CFI, CFII
I have had a lifelong love of all things aviation and aerospace, and though I didn't grow up with access to the aviation community, I made it a goal to find my place here. I am a Seattle native and my journey started after I was accepted into a small school in its inaugural stages, called Aviation High School. After an intro flight; I was hooked!
After College I joined a major airline and traveled the world as a flight attendant for several years before re-committing to my raison d’être. My professional flight training started here in the Pacific NorthWest, and I chased the flying to Southern California and Arizona for the remainder of my advanced training - in some of America’s busiest airspace!
Growing up, I spent years doing community work and professionally dancing folklorico in the PNW, it brings me so much joy to be returning to my roots to instruct here. When I’m not flying, I spend my time dancing, painting, outdoors and geeking out over all things sci-fi.
It is my mission to make flying fun and accessible for everyone. I want everyone to have the chance to see their goals actualized! I am so thankful for the opportunity to share my passion at Rainier and in this amazing community.
See you in the friendly skies!
