Tanner Piety

I have been enamored with airplanes and flying for as long as I can remember! My dream to become a pilot was solidified when my father earned his private pilot certificate when I was twelve, and I joined him almost every weekend for the aviation tradition of the “$100 hamburger.”
I grew up in the Bay Area and completed my private, instrument, and commercial pilot certificates at the San Carlos Airport in 2014. Shortly after, I enlisted in the Air Force and served as a KC-10 Boom Operator, responsible for in-flight refueling and cargo operations all around the world. I was also a member of the Base Honor Guard, where we had the distinct privilege of conducting funeral honors for veterans and their families, as well as presenting the colors at local community events.
After the Air Force, I earned my flight instructor certificate, which is one of my proudest accomplishments. It allows me to share my passion for flight and help others achieve their goals! With a background in both civilian and military aviation, I will ensure you receive comprehensive instruction that is tailored to fit your learning style and goals. I feel that the Bay Area is one of the best places to learn how to fly, with a vast array of airports, environments, and cutting-edge aircraft available for rental. Whether your aviation dreams are purely recreational or you are pursuing it as a profession, I look forward to working with you! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
