“I was glad that I had been referred to Northern Air Inc. for my pilot training. The staff was always prompt and very helpful with any aspect of the training process. Northern Air is great learning environment!

I received my Private Pilot Certificate in 2004 in 5 weeks with Tammy Blanford (CFII).

I trained and received my Commercial Pilot Certificate in 2012 in 3 weeks with Nathaniel Cheshire (CFII).

In 2014, I added my Airplane Instrument Rating in 3 weeks with Nathaniel Cheshire (CFII).

You can see the dedication that they put into the student by the well maintained aircraft and record keeping. I think the Fixed Base Operator is such a great learning environment, because everyone staffed in my opinion has a passion for aviation.

All were very receptive, you could talk to maintenance, ground crew, dispatch, or owner with any questions you might have.

It wasn’t just the CFI, it is a team effort.  I would highly recommend Northern Air Inc. for any flight training need.”

“I would like to nominate the pilots of Northern Air for the Firefighter of the year award. Reason for nomination of Dave Parker of Northern Air as follows:

Dave is very professional at his job and is a pleasure to work with. Every time I have flown with them it is a great experience and knowing that I will get a very fun and professional flight is a tribute to their dedication and commitment to the KNF.

Also, they have an outstanding safety record and it shows through their ability to give excellent safety briefings. Northern Air also has some of the best equipment out there and this is a testament to the quality they provide to the Kootenai National Forest.

I am always excited to fly with them every chance I get”
