Zach Brandt | Flight Instructor
Certificates & Ratings Held: CFI, CFII
Growing up, I always had an interest and a desire to be involved in aviation. Looking back, I definitely spent a sizable portion of my childhood on Microsoft Flight Simulator learning as much as I could about flying. After finishing high school in the Puget Sound area, I joined the military reserves where I got exposure working around and supporting rotorcraft operations. This experience further sparked my desire to continue learning more about flying.
After studying business in college and working several years in the insurance industry, I realized I would be doing myself a disservice if I didn’t follow my passion and pursue a career in aviation. My prior career taught me a lot about risk management and planning for the unexpected. That knowledge has served me well in becoming the pilot I am today. As an instructor, I hope to inspire others and help them accomplish their goals and dreams.
Outside of flying, I love mountain biking, board games, and going on camping trips with my wife around the PNW. If there is a football or soccer game on TV, I’m probably watching it! I am grateful to be a part of Rainier Flight Service and look forward to flying with you!
