Jo'Nathan Alderson | Flight Instructor
Certificates & Ratings Held: CFI
Growing up on Beacon Hill (right in between Boeing Field and Renton), aviation was bound to make an impression on me. It wasn't until I began high school, that I really started to show interest in flying. I went on a discovery flight during my freshman year, and decided that this is what I want to do every day for the rest of my life.
After graduating high school I began to take aviation more seriously. I joined the Solo Flight Academy and soloed for the first time right here at Rainier in N6029V! After my solo, I began flight training at Big Bend, where I finished my Commercial License, and then went on to finish my Multi-Engine Commercial and CFI elsewhere.
With my CFI certificate in hand, I decided that I wanted to come back and instruct at Rainier, the place where it all started for me. Rainier has been a great fit for me, and I know it will be great for you too! If you see me around, feel free to say "Hi." I would love to talk with you about aviation or anything else (I am very knowledgeable about technology - another trait I picked up while growing up in Seattle)!
When I am not working at Rainier (or flying), I am most likely studying. I am currently attending Central Washington University, where I am able to do all of my classes online. This has been a great opportunity for me because it affords me with a lot of free time - which I can use to come to work whenever I want!
I am excited to be a part of the team here at RFS, I look forward to seeing you around the flight school.
