December 31st, we created miracles at Renton Airport. We flew 109 women today. 45 yesterday. Add that to our previous 225--- Oh wow.
Be it by skids, floats, or wheels--- 379 women took to the sky at Renton Airport. Did we make the world's most female friendly airport? We'll know on January 6th when the final results are in. If we didn't, we absolutely made the world's most inspirational airport. I have never seen more dedicated men and women coming together for the love of an industry.

So many more thanks, for so many people. Where do I begin? They kept everything running smoothly. Organized. Loaded people. Bought pizza and soda. Brought me chocolate. Theresa, Kandyce, Snoviah, Anne, Ruth, Katie, Janice, Dan Pooke, Dan Hammes from ERAU, Austin, Jay, Shad, Shad's dad Gary, Karen, Mark, Joyce and of course Mireille-- miss Centennial Of Women Pilots herself. Thank you all so very much for your help. Without you-- and our helpers and pilots from December 30th and December 5th we could not have sparked the dreams of so many.

What a way to end the year. But a funny thing happened on our flight around the pattern--- Scheduling called! I'm on my way to Amsterdam and Bombay today.
May the new year bring great joy, love, health, happiness and the gift of flight. Happy New Year Everyone! Thank you all for making dreams come true.
Enjoy the Journey in 2011!
