FLY More in Washington!

Twisp Washington! 
Last weekend I had the honor and pleasure of meeting many members of the Washington Pilots Association (WPA) from the Okanogan and Ferry county chapter.

My hubby and I over the mountains and through the woods to Twisp, on Thursday.  Then we headed northeast to Winthrop, for dinner and their monthly meeting. I was invited as a guest speaker and a wonderful time as had by all. Especially me!

We stayed at the Chewuch Inn, which was amazing. And... the owner is a pilot too!

Our room was incredible and something you would never expect in the wilderness. A definite must visit for anyone and everyone. And... you can fly there too! You simply should fly there. If you would like a co-pilot to go with you... I'm in! 

What I learned was how active this WPA Chapter is supporting aviation and the love of flying. They also have two pages of events and fly-ins scheduled over the next 5 months that you must attend! 
You're Invited:

Date:     May 21st!!!
Event:   Twisp BBQ and WPA Meeting. 
Time:    3 p.m. 
BBQ Potluck... the club provides the steaks! 
Info for Twisp Airport

I will keep up with sharing these events weekly, so hopefully you can make one or more! There is nothing better than spending time with pilots and their love of flying. The Okanogan and Ferry county chapter of the WPA is awesome, and these pilots are more than willing to share their expertise with mountain flying too. Reach out and meet your flying neighbors of Washington. 

Keep Aviation Alive!

Like them on Facebook 
and remember to 
Share the love of Flying!
Enjoy the Journey!

Inspiration from Brazil!

Pictures speak a thousand words...

"Paraglider here in Santos, 
my city, coast, jumped a hill, 


and as you can see is wonderful, 
second parachute, 
the Cessna caravan, 
love these planes,
jumping or command."

PC12 Pilatus, I love this plane.

Once read a review 
of an aeronautical photographer 
Magazine, Review... saying, 


photos are beautiful, 
but interprets them as pilot 
there who is by choice 
and who does for which loves.

Thank you, my friend, Marcio 
For Sharing your Incredible experience!

Success in Eduction...

Students Reading Flight To Success


From the Teacher....

"I just want to let you know that the kids are really enjoying your book, Flight to Success!  We've been reading it a loud in class and one student has loved it so much she's gone ahead 87 pages!  By the way, she is one of my struggling readers!  I thank you so much for coming to the class. 

 It was such a treat and your book says everything that they need to hear at this point in their lives!  It is so important for this age group to get positive feedback and know that their desires are not frivolous!  More over, to know that they can achieve whatever they set their minds to!

I felt strongly and wanted you to know that you are making a very positive impact on a great group of kids.  Thank you!!"

At any age! 

Enjoy the Journey!

The Best Flight Ever!

Soars Across the Oceans...
"I am not afraid to walk
the path that my soul
dictates - for I know it
has my true interests
at heart."

~ by Eleesha,
Author of - The Soul Whisperer

Monday motivation is inspired by so many people around the world. Eleesha somehow sends me inspirations exactly when I need them, as if she knows my challenges and is providing inspiration and confidence to push forward.  I cannot be afraid to walk my path, as you cannot fear walking yours. 
And then I get personal comments via emails from around the world on my book. Last weekend I received one that made me smile, and the timing was so appropriate. As many of you know, I have a mission with my writing... and that is to create a safer aviation industry, and a positive and enriching work environment for our future aviators, as our lives are in their hands. The novel series is a path to accomplish awareness. Experience and the PhD is the process to create change. Your reading the books and commenting is the help I need to accomplish the mission. Thank you!

Mark's comment from the UK:

"I am left speechless as to latest flight novel, no word, sentence or paragraph truly describe "FLIGHT FOR SURVIVAL" So well orchestrated, and, hidden within the whole novel... 

The twists the turns the ever unfolding and differing angles. In light of previous novels, I have to say this best yet, and against some other top authors (Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts). Can't wait till the 4th novel is out."

Start at the Beginning! 

And prepare for the fourth Novel...

Comments on Amazon are so much appreciated!
Thank you!

Enjoy the Journey

For the Love of Flying...

It's Time to Soar!  
Friday's Fabulous Flyer...

"Let the steps I take towards my destiny be bold ones
for I know I am bold enough to walk this path." 
~ by Eleesha,
Author of - The Soul Whisperer 


"I got to fly a Piper Cherokee 
today for the first time!"

"A friend was flying it, and let me take over the controls.  It was great, I liked it more than a Cessna! It was the first time flying a low-wing plane, and that was the difference.  Also, I felt like the Cherokee seemed a little heavier & more stable in the wind"

Enjoy Every Moment 
on the ground, or in the sky... 
Today is your time to fly! 

Enjoy the Journey!
