Brianna Quinn – School Director at Scottsdale, AZ School
By Andrew Henley
Brianna’s love for aviation began while she was growing up in Louisiana and California. As a girl, Brianna would travel with her parents and remembers taking off and raising her arms in the air as if she were riding a roller coaster.
Now a Private Pilot working on her Instrument Rating, Brianna still gets a thrill out of every takeoff, only now she keeps her hands on the yoke. Brianna came to American Flyers in 2016 as an administrative intern after working as a CSR for a 135-helicopter company in Louisiana. Before beginning her internship, Brianna thought she would share her passion for aviation by becoming an
airline or corporate pilot. During her internship she quickly realized that her greatest impact would be working as a manager at American Flyers.
In early 2017 Brianna accepted the position as the manager of our Scottsdale, Arizona, school location. When asked what she loves most about her job, she said, “I love my job. I am able to mentor students and watch them become confident and mature pilots. I know the instruction they are receiving is top-notch, and the care from our team is undeniable. I am honored to be a part of their success!” Brianna is passionate about aviation and even more so about the success of her students. The next time you’re in Arizona, stop by and say, “Hello!” Her passion, along with the rest of the Scottsdale staff, is unmatched.
