About

Dana’s passion for aviation started at an early age. Encouraged by his father (local TV legend Rod Anders, aka Ramblin’ Rod), Dana got his pilot’s license at age 19 and has been flying ever since (2700 hours!). He is now a commercial pilot and aircraft mechanic (A&P IA). He has also Complex, High Performance, Tailwheel, and Float ratings. In 1998 Dana and his father acquired the 1929 Travel Air biplane. The plane had not flown for almost 70 years. They started a 10 year, ground up, museum quality restoration. In fact, during the winter months the plane can be spotted on display at local aircraft museums. When the restoration was complete, Dana and Tami were excited to share their love of flying and antique aircraft by offering rides. For the past 10 years they have been traveling the Pacific Northwest in the summer months barnstorming with the Travel Air. In the summer, the plane can be found on the Oregon coast at Siletz Bay airport (between Depot Bay and Lincoln City). In the spring and fall the plane is based at the Hillsboro Oregon airport.
