Don’t Live in the Area? No Problem.

If you’re looking for a Flight Instructor position and willing to move, there’s no better place to live than the Pacific Northwest. We’re on a towered airfield, right next door to Boeing, and in the middle of several different classes of airspace. From our offices, we’re less than half an hour to the beach or forests and less than an hour to skiing or snowboarding. We’re also home to some of the greatest breweries and wineries in the nation, with many of the hops and grapes grown just two hours away in the Yakima Valley. Everywhere is green, the summers are amazing, the winters are mild, and the people are laid-back and friendly.

Outside of the summer months, the cloudy days allow for real IFR training. This location is fantastic for instructing and learning in all-weather operating environments.

If you’re a good candidate and willing to move for this position, we can be flexible with our interview process to accommodate your needs.
