Searching for Oregon Contacts in Pilots N Paws.
Dear Pilots N Paws members,
Hello, . . My name is Mark, .. I have four loves: dogs, Marine Mammals, boats (Ocean), and flying. I would love to be involved with flying your pets.
I am not a pilot yet, but I hope to begin pilot training at Hillsboro Aviation, west of Portland later this year.
I live in Woodburn, Oregon, about 39 miles south of Hillsboro Airport, and about 48 miles north of the Corvallis, OR airport.
Is there some way that I can fly with the pilots who transport these pets? Perhaps I could help pay for fuel, in addition to volunteering my time? I am mostly available on weekends.
I am hoping to become a Private Pilot, with other licenses later on, through the Instrument Rating course, and I hope to operate a non-profit 501c3 small business, where I will be transporting injured and non-injured, Animal Shelter dogs & cats across the western and mid-western states, and Canada.
Please let me know if you believe that it will be to my advantage to seek my Private Pilot's license, and Instrument Rating through a small airport near Corvallis, rather than the big city of Hillsboro.
Thank you for your help.
Kind regards, ~Mark
