JANUARY DINNER MEETING


Thursday - January 2nd


Aaron J. Varland

FAASTeam Program Manager


Social 6:30 pm; Dinner 7:00 pm



Aaron Varland was born and raised in Reedsport, Oregon. His first flight was in the summer of 2001 in a Cessna 172 owned by one of his mother's coworkers. That flight set in motion Aaron's pursuit of a career in aviation. After graduating from high school, he moved to Oklahoma in 2002 to pursue his formal flight training.

Since moving to Oklahoma, Aaron has obtained a bachelors degree in aviation management, instructed part 61/141, and flown professionally under parts 91, 91k and 135. In 2014 he was hired into the Will Rogers Flight Standards District Office as an Aviation Safety Inspector. As an ASI he had oversight of commercial operators working under parts 133, 135, 137 and 141; as well as providing medical flight reviews, 44709's and check rides. In June of 2017, Aaron joined the Federal Aviation Administration Safety Team with the goal of helping to reduce the aviation accident rate in the state of Oklahoma.
