Jonathan Wilkinson

Flight Academy Director


Jonathan is from a small town in Indiana, where he learned the value of hard work and the importance of having people around that you can trust. Aviation is in his blood, both grandfathers were pilots and he grew up hearing their stories about flying. It turned his eyes to the sky at an early age, and he hasn’t looked back down since. While earning his bachelor’s degree in finance from Hillsdale College in Michigan, Jonathan spent his free time flying on a simulator. Here, he realized he wanted to pursue a career in aviation rather than finance. You could say his path to becoming a pilot wasn’t a traditional one. He’s been officially working in the industry since 2019 and is living his dream. In his role as Flight Academy Director, Jonathan’s goal is to support the growth of Sawyer Flight Academy it’s position as one of the best and most advanced flight academies with its state-of-the-art equipment and expertise. When he’s not working or flying, Jonathan enjoys spending time outdoors hiking or golfing and spending time with his wife.
