With Skip Moshner, the new President of Galvin Flying, at the helm and a dedicated team of professional flight instructors standing by, the FAA-approved Seattle flight training school stays true to the core values of its founder, Jim Galvin, by providing the highest caliber flight training education available while ensuring stellar customer service.

Galvin Flying teaches the world to fly on Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington, a distinguished achievement that few aviation schools can claim. By continuously adapting to the needs of our customers and advances in aviation, Galvin has successfully trained over 20,000 aviators throughout our tenure in Seattle. Of these aviators, many have gone on to become airline pilots, corporate pilots, used aviation as a business tool, or simply have pursued the joy of flight with family and friends.

Well-known by many in the industry as a leader and one of the best in flight training, Galvin Flying offers a staff of professional instructors with an extensive range and depth of flying experience, the latest advanced flight training devices, computer-equipped classrooms, and a diverse, meticulously maintained fleet of aircraft. It is for these reasons that we have been selected to work with companies like the FAA, Boeing and Green River College.

Our flight-training department is not only approved for Part 141 and 61 operations, but we are also VA and SEVIS/SEVP certified, allowing Galvin to work with Veterans using their GI Bill/Post 911 Benefits and even international students on M1 visas. We help aspiring pilots earn their pilot certificates (private and/or commercial), add an instrument or multi-engine rating, or even earn an airline transport pilot (ATP) certificate.

Along with our standardized 141 curricula, our part 61 training allows rated pilots to rent aircraft, complete an endorsement for high-performance and complex aircraft, transition to technically advanced “glass cockpit” airplanes, and maintain flight proficiency.

As our Seattle flight training organization continues to grow, Galvin’s doors are currently open not only to new students, but also to new flight instructors and aircraft.

My passion for aviation and flight training motivated me to purchase Galvin Flying. Realizing this business has the potential to fly ever higher – coupled with the support of the community – brings a whole new level of excitement.
