Jon Reed

DIRECTOR AT LARGe

I am currently a First Officer for a major US airline.  My love of flying started young. A ride in a Stearman Bi-Plane sealed the deal at age 7, closely followed by building cockpits out of cardboard boxes in my garage growing up. I was not from a aviation family and had to find my own way to my current dream job through hard work, staying positive, luck and a lot of hope from some amazing people and pilots along the way.  I have a Bachelors of Arts from the University of Oregon.

Flying Career:

Flight Safety International Academy- Vero Beach, FL 2001

Certified Flight Instructor/Traffic Watch PIlot- Hillsboro Aviation 2002-

2003 Cessna Caravan Pilot- Pacific Wings based in Maui, HI. 2003-2004

SkyWest Airlines- CRJ-200/700/900, EMB-120. 2004-2016

United Airlines- B737, B777 2016- Present

The only thing more rewarding for me than flying airplanes is helping other people achieve their dreams of doing the same
