Briefly about myself:
my name is Stefan Tönners and I grew up in Järvsö, Sweden.
In June of 1988 I left my job as a teacher in Sollentuna, outside Stockholm, to become a Professional Pilot!
IT WAS A HUGE STEP for me, but I have never regretted it.
I now fly for one of the best airlines in the world; Northwest Airlines, the fourth largest airline in the United States with over 6000 pilots!
Here is how I did it...

  • North American Institute of Aviation. Las Cruces, New Mexico. This is where I started my initial FAR 141 accelerated flight training.
  • Eagle Flight Center. Portland-Hillsboro airport (HIO), Oregon. My first commercial pilot job as a Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), CFII & MEI.
  • Horizons Unlimited. My first FAR 135/Air taxi job, also at the HIO airport. Government fire contracts in Alaska. An awesome experience!!! Aircraft: Aero Commanders (AC500)
  • Horizon Air. My first FAR 121 job based at the Portland International airport (PDX), Oregon. National airline.  Aircraft: Dash8 (DHC-8)
  • Northwest Airlines. My Major Airline job!!! Aircraft:DC9.
