About Nick Herring
Nick Herring grew up near a small GA airport where he caught the “aviation disease” as a kid. He obtained his private pilot license in 1987 flying out of a small Montana airport. A National Park Ranger for over 40 years, he has had the privilege of flying over some of the most scenic landmarks across the country, including a couple of trips to and from Alaska. He was lucky enough to add fleet pilot to his Park Ranger duties, flying Cessna 206 aircraft for the government and conducting all kinds of missions including wildlife telemetry, search and rescue, boundary/hunting patrols, and passenger transports. Retired now, he flies his own 1965 Cessna 182 out of Colorado, where he conducts volunteer missions for wildland and wildlife conservation when not flying just for fun.
