About Sparky.

Sparky Imeson was born and raised in Jackson, Wyoming. He grew up in the mountains where his grandfather homesteaded and he learned to appreciate the mountains "from the ground up." He was bitten by the 'flying bug' in July 1966, and began flying his father's Piper J-3 Cub and Cessna 205. Fueled by a love of flying, Sparky and his parents, Paul and Jennie, started Imeson Aviation, Inc. in 1968, at the Jackson Hole Airport.

Located at the base of the Grand Teton mountain range, Imeson Aviation offered on-demand charter, FAA Approved flight training and ground school, air ambulance, aerial application (spraying), mosquito spraying, aerobatic training, corporate flying, airplane sales (Cessna, Bellanca and Maule aircraft) and rentals, fueling, and maintenance.

Sparky became concerned about the number of general aviation accidents that were attributed to mountain flying, and finding no books on the matter, he wrote his own. He received the FAA Northwest Region's Flight Instructor of the Year award in 1974, 1979 and 1995, for providing effective and creative flight and ground instruction. Many of his 20,000+ flight hours have been in small airplanes in the mountains.

Sparky's strength as a writer, teacher and mountain pilot lends to his books a clear, concise style that is not only thorough, but fun to read. Sparky is qualified to teach you the techniques for flying the mountains and is available for mountain flying presentations and seminars.
