Lisa Allen (Idaho)

Lisa Allen is based at KBOI, Boise Air Terminal/Gowen Field, Boise, Idaho.

I have been involved in aviation for about 17 years, through wildland firefighting and as a pilot. I love being in the air, whether it’s under a parachute or in an airplane or helicopter. I have been very fortunate to turn my passion for flying into a career.

Every time I have had the opportunity to fly a tailwheel, I have loved it! I am hooked on how the aircraft feels as the tail comes off the ground. I enjoy the attentiveness needed to keep the aircraft traveling straight down the taxiway and runway. I enjoy how a tailwheel opens up the bush and backcountry for exploration and adventure.
