Highs to Lows... and weather is involved.

Monday ... I was honored with the task of presenting the award for the most female-pilot friendly airport in the United States to Mayor Denis Law, and the city of Renton.

Renton City Council is a wonderful group of people who serve their city, by helping families and businesses live, learn, grow and prosper. We're looking forward to the entire cities involvement in next year's flying event.

Tuesday ... I spent the day cleaning and conditioning airplane seats at BEFA. I couldn't stop at the seats, and those little planes never looked so good. I listened to music and enjoyed watching the planes come and go. While there, I got to watch Cassy do her solo flight.

Cassie had joined us on our December 5th fly it forward event. Tuesday she soloed, and I took the coolest pictures. Last night I learned another lesson about MacBook Pro iPhoto, and I accidentally deleted the pictures. To say I was heartbroken is an understatement. Crushed. Cassy, I am so sorry! The good news is her instructor took some pictures too.

Today ... I'm revising Flight For Control. Sunshine and 60 in Seattle... sounds like a good day to write outside.

Enjoy the Journey!

  3. Thanks Linda... all great plans. Hope you're doing great!

  4. Hi Karelene, went to the BEFA web site and they had a link to a great Java based VOR trainer app at that your readers that are training for their private licence may find useful.

  5. Thank you Capt Daags... they will find that useful. I think I better go to the BEFA website myself. Thanks!!!

  6. Congrats on Renton!! Mike

  7. I was flying last night and noticed the big banner on the blast fence at the south end. Saw it when driving in. Didn't get to admire it from the air, wind was from the south!
