Dan Everette | Flight Instructor
Certificates & Ratings Held: CFI, CFII, MEI
I am new to Rainier Flight Service, after 25 years in the Coast Guard. I was bit by the aviation bug after taking a discovery flight in 2005, and my first pilgrimage to EAA in Oshkosh confirmed for me that this is what I love to do. I learned to fly in the busy Northeast, where I fell in love with the challenges and complexity of IFR flight in busy airspace.
Learning is a lifelong process, and I find that I became a safer and more experienced pilot by learning different aspects of aviation. I’m looking forward to earning additional ratings in the future to broaden my horizons. I’m excited to return to teaching and to be sharing my passion for aviation with others. Although I’ve lived in Seattle for 5 years, I was routinely deployed to the Arctic and Antarctic, so I spend my free time exploring what the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
