Jordan Schiavone Bio
I am a Northern boy from the Twin Cities of Minnesota. My aviation journey started at a very young age, thanks to my wonderful mother and her work at the Northwest Airlines HQ. Growing up, I was lucky to have opportunities of going to work with her, meeting the MSP based chief pilots and take a few rides in the 747-200 simulators.
Growing up around the aviation lifestyle, I knew that I wanted to pursue flying as a career. I applied to the University of North Dakota and spent the next three and a half years after high school taking classes, where I went from an individual with no flying experience to a flight instructor.
Upon graduation, I knew I wanted to expand my horizons, spreading my love of aviation to others as well as continuing to improve my abilities (because you’re never done learning in aviation!). I have since found my way out west hoping to help future aviators follow their dreams and achieve their aviation goals.
When I am not flying, I enjoy skiing, hiking, trying new and exotic foods, as well as exploring everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
