Jeff Rettig

Originally from New Jersey, Jeff spent his childhood weekends at the local airport with his parents Dave and Rae.  Both avid pilots and the owners of a 1967 Cessna 172, aviation was a large part of his life.  Family vacations, Sunday brunch and the occasional special dinners were all skyward-bound adventures.

Jeff moved to Wyoming in 1996 to fulfill his dream of living in the mountains.  It wasn’t until a few years later, while flying one of his RC airplanes, he realized it was time to take flight.  He recalls going to his intro flight and the weather grounded them.  They asked him to reschedule and he thought for a moment “I don’t need an intro flight, lets just do it”.  He received his license in 2011, his instrument rating in 2012, commercial license in 2013, and CFII in 2015.  He also holds his tail-wheel endorsement and the majority of his flying experience is in the mountains surrounding Jackson Hole.

Married shortly after receiving his private pilots license and now having 2 beautiful daughters, a change was needed. As a chef for almost 30 years and the demanding schedule that came with it, sharing his passion for flight was a welcomed change.

When he is not flying “real airplanes” he can be found flying his RC airplanes, fishing, skiing the backcountry and spending time with his family.  Come fly with Jeff and let him share his knowledge and passion of flight with you.

His work with the USFS took him to the skies in Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Utah, Colorado and Nevada.

David is an accomplished and lifelong carpenter. When his feet are on the ground you might find him skiing, fly fishing or bird hunting. While flying fulfills David’s sense of adventure, he says the most important part of his life has been his two daughters, Annie and husband Reed who live in Colorado Springs and Whitney, who lives in Austin, TX.
