SEATTLE’S FIRST AVIATION HIGH SCHOOL GRAD LANDS AT DYNON AVIONICS


 

Natalie Nason spoke at the dedication ceremonies for the new $43 million Raisbeck Aviation High School which will be built across the street from the Boeing Aviation Museum of Flight. James Raisbeck is behind her.

 

Woodinville, WA – Natalie Nason entered Seattle’s Aviation High School with its inaugural class in 2004 and graduated with that group in 2008. Nason then enrolled at Rocky Mountain College, majoring in communications, with a minor in business management/aviation, and graduated Magna Cum Laude in three years.

Aviation High School, which has designed their curriculum around the history, math, science and business of aviation, has just broken ground for a $43.5 million facility across the street from the Boeing Museum of Flight. In response to a $3 million gift from James and Sherry Raisbeck, the new facility will be called the Raisbeck Aviation High School. Nason was invited to speak at the dedication ceremonies.

Nason’s focus on aviation dates back to her childhood. Raised at the Crest Airpark, near Seattle, she watched her father build a Falco Sequoia which won the Grand Champion Award at AirVenture 2006. As a child, she attended the EAA Air Academy. After earning her pilot’s license at 18, she assisted 20 At-Risk kids in building a Rans Aircraft kit at Boeing Field.

Nason’s most recent move was joining the Marketing and Sales team at Dynon Avionics. “We are pleased to hire an exceptional young pilot who has such an impressive combination of education and practical experience,” said Robert Hamilton, Director of Marketing and Sales at Dynon. “The Aviation High School provided her with invaluable insight and knowledge for a career in the aviation industry. Natalie has supplemented that with University training and a variety of hands on experiences at Boeing Field. With her background and high energy level she is perfectly suited to work with the worldwide customer base for Dynon Avionics.”

        Founded in 2000, Dynon Avionics is the leading manufacturer of avionics for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft. Continuing a tradition started with the introduction of their first Electronic Flight Information System “glass panel”, Dynon is committed to developing innovative and high-quality avionics integrating the newest technology as it develops at affordable prices for all pilots.
