Meet Our New CFI: Summer Aleman


Her first flight was as a toddler, in a car seat, in the back of a Cessna 172. She has been around aviation her entire life due to a private pilot and A&P mechanic father who continuously encouraged her to fly. After getting a Bachelors Degree at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo she decided to pursue a career in aviation.


She was lucky enough to learn to fly from a well-seasoned pilot out of KTRM and had the opportunity to receive her tail wheel endorsement while learning to correctly “use her feet”. She was hooked right off the bat and quickly worked through all of her certifications and continued to get her CFI, CFII and MEI.

Summer carries forward a classic outlook on flying and is determined to help people love flying just as much as she does.
