Instructor Bio

My name is Evan Taylor and I’m a 26 year old CFI, CFII, and MEI. I grew up with both parents in the aviation industry - my dad worked at Boeing and my mom worked as a flight attendant for Continental (eventually United). Growing up I was fortunate to be able to travel to many places across Europe, Asia, and Australia. Having these experiences has definitely shaped who I am as a person and made me want to travel the world as well.

I went to the University of Washington out of High School and graduated with a major in Psychology and a minor in Informatics. I worked as a Recruiter for a staffing agency for a little over a year when I realized I wanted something more.

I had a very impactful vacation that I went on with my mom and her peers to Greece. On this vacation I had the opportunity to speak with many Pilots, Flight Attendants and their spouses. Hearing their stories, I related strongly to what they were saying and decided to give it a shot - it was at least worth figuring out if I liked it! After a couple discovery flights, I was hooked and decided I needed to pursue my dream of being a pilot.

I began flying in February of 2019, and received my Private Pilot rating in October that year. I headed down to Mesa, Arizona to finish up my training, receiving my Instrument, Commercial, Comm Multi, CFI, CFII, and MEI.

In my free time I enjoy live music, hiking, spending time with friends and family, and watching football, basketball, baseball and formula 1.
