RFT 085: Designated Examiner Natalie Hoover

May 15, 2017

Although Natalie Hoover’s dad was an Air Force pilot and then became a Fedex pilot, she really didn’t have any interest in flying until after she graduated college. On her way to pursuing a master’s degree, she took an introductory airplane flight, and never looked back. She spent the next two years virtually living at the airport, collecting all the ratings, and getting an airline job.

Then she realized she wanted to get back to her roots in General Aviation, and became a full-time CFI. Later, she became a Designated Examiner, and now divides her flight time between instructing and conducting evaluations.

Natalie also writes a monthly column for AOPA Pilot Magazine. In addition to her ATP, she holds Gold Seal CFI, CFII, and MEI certificates.
