About Samantha McDonald


I moved from outside of Philadelphia to Los Angeles at in 2015. I went school at Loyola Marymount University and studied sociology.  While I was in school, I started working part-time on the flight line at Santa Monica Flyers. After working there a few months, and meeting more instructors, I knew that I wanted to make flying my career. I completed most of my ratings through Santa Monica flyers and have loved working and flying there the past 5 years. I currently have my instrument rating, multi-engine commercial, and CFI-A. I love teaching and watching students grow as pilots to achieve their dreams. My favorite places to fly in So Cal are Catalina, Big Bear, and Santa Barbara. My goal is to one day fly a Gulfstream 650!
