Mary Alverson is one of the Field Directors in Minnesota for the Seaplane Pilots Association. She was born in Duluth, Minnesota, and lives in Minneapolis and Brainerd, where she owns and operates “Wings Over Water” seaplane flight training at Madden’s Resort. A flight attendant for much of her career – first with North Central Airlines, then with Northwest Airlines when it merged with North Central, and eventually with Delta Airlines following its merger with Northwest, Alverson is truly an adventurer. Besides obtaining her commercial pilot certificate, instrument, multi-engine-instrument, single and multi-engine seaplane, and flight instructor-instrument ratings, she became a Captain with New Mexico Airlines. Alverson is also an FAA Designated Examiner, FAAST Team Representative, Secretary of the Minnesota Pilots Association, and was President of the Minnesota Seaplane Pilots Association from 2009 to 2012.
