In February 2022, Samantha Eliason started pursuing her Private Pilots license with Sheridan Pilots 307. She became very engaged with the school and beyond being a student, took over marketing and event planning and shortly was named Marketing Director. When Samantha's senior year started at Sheridan High School in the fall, she was able to secure an internship with the flight school. Balancing her role beyond pursuing her license, she recently completed her FAA written exam and has concurred over 60 hours of flight time. She has dedicated many hours coordinating the SP307 booths for Downtown Sheridan's "Third Thursday" events, designing merchandise, organizing operations, coordinating major events, enhancing our website and managing social media platforms.
Outside of SP307 and flight training she is involved in activities such as Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field, volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Special Education Program, taking college courses with Sheridan College, and spending time outdoors with her family. Her youthful spirit and entrepreneur-like skills have been critical to her success as SP307's Marketing Director!
