Natalie Nason entered Seattle’s Aviation High School with its inaugural class in 2004 and graduated with that group in 2008. She then enrolled at Rocky Mountain College, majoring in communications, with a minor in business management/aviation, and graduated Magna Cum Laude in three years. Her first job out of college is with Dynon Avionics.
Aviation High School, which has designed its 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 a manufacturer of avionics for Experimental and Light Sport Aircraft.
