Meet Paradise Helicopter Pilot, Tianna
Q&A with Paradise Helicopters Pilot, Tianna
Where are you from?
**What brought you to Hawai’i? **
Why did you become a pilot?
What’s your background in flight experience? Where did you get the bulk of your hours?
I completed the professional pilot program at Mauna Loa Helicopters on Oahu. Then I became a flight instructor, assistant chief pilot at the Oahu base, and tour pilot. I was able to build flight time and experience teaching others how to fly as well as flying tours on Oahu.. Then, in March of 2017, my boss told me to reach out to Kalei Gregory, the chief pilot at Paradise Helicopters about a position flying the MD 500 out of Turtle Bay Resort. Kalei offered me a job flying the MD 500 as well as the Bell 407. That’s how I got my dream job.
