Nathaniel “Nate” Perlman

Growing up in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the home of the world’s largest air show and fly in, Nate was born into aviation.   Learning how to fly in the early 1990’s Nate came up around legendary air racers like Steve Wittman and Bill Brennand. 

Over the last 30 years Nate has logged over ten thousand hours in over 30 types of aircraft from pre-war airliners like the Ford and Stinson Tri-Motors and early Taylor Cubs, to warbirds like the Stearman and T-6 and C-47, even earning his tailwheel sign off in a 1942 Cessna T-50.   On to the post-war GA boom of aircraft Nate has flown most Cessna and Piper aircraft from the 1950’s to 1970’s and once owned a 1957 v-tail Bonanza.  Modern turboprop and jet airliners and business jets round out the near 100 years worth of aircraft Nate has flown.

Currently he owns and flys a retired Reno Air Racer in the form of a Lancair 360 and is a captain and senior sim instructor for Horizon Air on the DeHavilland Dash 8 Q400 aircraft.   As fate would have it the man brokering the sale of the Lancair and checking Nate out in the aircraft was none other than Scotty Crandlemire.  The rest, as they say, is history.
