I'm Jonathan Mast, and welcome to my website!
I have dreamed of being a pilot since I was very young. I started wanting to be an astronaut at about age four and realized that it probably would not happen, so I decided that flying a plane would be the next best thing! Dad would take us to airshows a lot and random airports to watch airplanes, and I loved every minute of it! I earned my private pilot certificate in Grand Junction, Colorado, in 2008; it indeed was a life-changing event! I am now a commercial pilot and certified flight instructor. I also have my multi-engine rating, instrument rating, and instrument instructor certificate.
As an instructor, I have the great honor to help others bring their dreams to reality! Walking along with a student from the wonder and amazement of their first flight, learning the knowledge and skills, passing the check ride, and becoming the newest private pilot! It is also gratifying to help private pilots to earn their instrument rating and the commercial certificate. As pilots, we are always learning and to be an active part of that progress is a rewarding experience!
Over the years, I have realized that serving others is life's greatest calling. Whether it's building tents and handing out diapers in a refugee camp in Greece, cleaning up after tornadoes and hurricanes in Mississippi, or teaching others the freedom of flight, life is about serving others. My goal is to genuinely care about the people I work with and meet in my daily life.
So if you would like to meet with me and experience the freedom that flying brings, give me a call! We'll go up for a quick tour around the valley and discuss the best path forward for you.
