"I had the good fortune to have Tim Pfahler as a mentor and co-worker during his last eight years as a pilot inspector for the USFS. I was struck then by his low-key demeanor and the ease with which he was able to weave the thread of safety and standardization into everything about natural resource flight operations. Tim has the unique ability to engage even the reluctant student in theory and applied practice regarding mountainous terrain flight and longline operations. I have yet to meet a pilot that came away from a training encounter with Tim that didn’t feel as if they got more than they gave. If natural resource flight operations is your passion I strongly urge you to consider Tim Pfahler."
