Randal Walliser
Brief Description:

From piston props to jumbo jets, many people dream of becoming an airline pilot.  But what does it take to get there?  Randall Walliser has been involved in aviation for as long as he can remember, and knows what it takes to get and hold the dream position.

Long ago, Randall flew as a member at San Carlos Flight Center, eventually became a flight instructor, and then progressed to the airlines.  We have invited him back to tell us about his latest adventure, as a commercial pilot for SkyWest Airlines.  In this seminar, Randall will share what it took to secure his spot in the world of airlines, and share his thoughts about how to get there most efficiently.  For many aspiring pilots, this might seem like a difficult task and could deter many, but by attending this seminar you’ll discover ways to overcome barriers.

We encourage anybody who has ever dreamed of becoming an airline pilot to attend this seminar and see for yourself what it takes.  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to see how you can obtain the job of your dreams.


Randall Walliser is a Captain at SkyWest Airlines flying the CRJ Series.  Prior to joining the airlines, Randall was a CFI at San Carlos Flight Center, and has accumulated over 3500 flight hours.
