Stephanie Johnson – Operations Manager
I was born and raised in Alaska, where for most, small aircraft is a way of life. After graduating I moved further south and spent time in both Seattle, WA and Santa Barbara, CA before settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. I began work for 24 Hour Fitness as an Operations Manager in 1996, where I worked all over Northern California and up into Reno Nevada. In 2007 my brother convinced me to move to Las Vegas to be closer to family. Not knowing much about the work industry here, my brother introduced me to the aviation world through a friend. I have been working for Elite Flight Training and Management since 2008 and I must say that I have been invited into a very exclusive community. Growing up in Alaska, most everyone I knew either had a plane or was a pilot and I must admit that I never really knew what was involved in learning to fly, and I must say that it has been very educational and eye opening for me. The Flight Instructors continue to teach me something new each and every day and I hope that it continues.
