Jeanne MacPherson (Montana)

Jeanne MacPherson is based at (KHLN) Helena Regional Airport, Helena, Montana.

I am recently retired from Chief of the Safety and Education Bureau, Aeronautics Division, Montana Department of Transportation. I coordinated air search operations, promoted aviation education, and taught mountain flying for more than 15 years. I am now flight instructing in Montana with my company “Mountain Airdance LLC”.

Prior to working for the State of Montana, I was a freight pilot and flight instructor. I am a commercial pilot and CFII with SEL, MEL, and SES ratings. I am member of the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) as well as the FAA FAASTeam, and have been trained in the Emergency Maneuver Training Program developed by Master CFI-Aerobatic Rich Stowell.

I was greatly honored in 2003 with The EAA Freedom of Flight Award (the Experimental Aircraft Association’s highest achievement award) for having flown more than 3,400 Young Eagles.

 I now fly a Super Decathlon and soon my husband and I will own a Cessna 180.

This is a very nice site. Thank you!

      Hi Christina,
      I would love to be able to come to this epic adventure!
      I have a conflict at that time. Both my daughters and their families are coming to Helena for a family reunion and to particpate in a local triathlon.
      I look forward to another time.
      Thank you for asking me.
