Ryan Mann Bio
I was born in Arizona and moved to Washington when I was 11 years old. My background ranges widely from working as a jazz musician, to a radio host and sound engineer, to a ski resort operator. I enjoyed all of these jobs and opportunities, but I have always wanted to fly for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I always found myself engrossed in anything aviation related. It started by simply reading books and watching videos of airplanes and bloomed into all kinds of flight training software and desktop simulators.
Years later, I finally took the leap to begin my flight training journey by becoming a member of the Rainier Flight Service team. To date, I am working towards obtaining my Private Pilot License (PPL) and just completed my first solo, as well as the RFS In-Class Ground School course. If you see me around, please stop by and say hi!
