Jeremy Harmon is the owner and Chief Flight Instructor at Higher Ground Aviation. He grew up in Buxton, Maine and has accumulated over 5800 flight hours. Jeremy possesses a deep passion for backcountry and seaplane flying and has flown in a multitude of environments such as the north woods of Maine, to the wilds of Alaska. His interest in flying started as a young kid by attending the International Seaplane Splash-in in Greenville, Maine. Another major contribution to his love for flying was his dad’s 1946 Aeronca Champ, which Jeremy is currently restoring. Jeremy started flying at 18, attending Spartan College of Aeronautics in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He graduated with his pilot certificates and an associates degree in aviation science. Between instructing new and aspiring pilots and flying the amazing Maine coast, Jeremy also takes time to enjoy the outdoors, play guitar, and bring history to life as a living historian.
