West­wind is pleased to announce that Daniel Schwartz has joined our staff. Dan and his wife Kathy recent­ly moved to San Juan Island from the Seat­tle area where he was a flight instruc­tor for a large, well regard­ed flight school.

Dan was involved with their Light Twin Refresh­er pro­gram, ATP tran­si­tion-train­ing pro­gram for mil­i­tary pilots, and instru­ment training.

Ear­li­er in his career, as a USCG-licensed Mas­ter Mariner, he com­mand­ed research ships on mis­sions for the Office of Naval Research, NSF and NOAA and lat­er was Man­ag­er of Marine Oper­a­tions from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wash­ing­ton’s School of Oceanography.

Dan is avail­able for brand new stu­dents inter­est­ed in learn­ing to fly, and can also con­duct pilot flight reviews and teach advanced flight rat­ings includ­ing instru­ment, com­mer­cial and mul­ti-engine. He brings a wealth of expe­ri­ence that will ben­e­fit our island pilots.

West­wind Avi­a­tion Inc. is a Fri­day Har­bor based, fam­i­ly owned busi­ness, that pro­vides Air Char­ter, Flight Train­ing and Scenic Fight ser­vices. Estab­lished in 2003, West­wind has the only twin engine IFR air­craft in the area which can pro­vide all-weath­er flights any­where in the Pacif­ic Northwest.
