Dan’s dad taught him the value of hard work and his mom the value of honesty. He will forever be indebted to them. After growing up and graduating from high school in Atlanta, Ga, Dan Bridges attended the U.S. Air Force Academy and then served as a pilot in the Air Force, including wartime service in Desert Storm. During his service, Dan spent many weeks sitting on alert at the end of a runway, prepared at a moment’s notice to refuel B-52s on their way to the Soviet Union in the case of a nuclear conflict. Some things in life bring great clarity to what we often take for granted.
As a longtime commercial pilot, Dan Bridges has decades of experience in accurately evaluating a challenging environment, determining the best options, working professionally with diverse fellow crew members, and, most importantly, getting his valued passengers to the important things in their lives safely and efficiently. Dan will utilize these invaluable skills to serve his constituents on their voyage of life.
Dan has also served his community as a Boy Scout leader(both he and his two sons are Eagle Scouts), homeowner’s association president, chairman of a church preschool, and on the board of the Good Samaritan Home here in Boise. He has a wonderful wife, 3rd generation Idahoan, and two fabulous children and is blessed to live in the greatest Nation and State in the world.
