Matthew is off today
Hours: 8am - 6pm
Matthew McBurney | Flight Instructor
Certificates & Ratings Held: CFI
Growing up in Seattle, my interest in aviation was sparked through trips to the Museum of Flight, watching seaplanes around the lakes, and traveling through the regions’ airports.
This interest became a passion when a college tour in Utah put me up for an intro flight. I knew I was hooked when sitting in a little Cessna waiting our turn to takeoff in between huge airliners.
I finished my four year degree and 141 certificates in Aviation Flight Operations at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. During my undergraduate I obtained my licenses up though Certified Flight Instructor and enjoyed every second of flying over the amazing state of Utah.
In my free time you will find me back country skiing and mountain biking. I love learning about unique aircraft and dream of building and flying my own kit plane.
As a flight instructor at Rainier, I look forward to helping you reach your goals and making memorable experiences along the way.
