March: Women Fly it Forward 2012
The third annual event introducing women to aviation through the gift of flight. Every year, I continue to be inspired by the individuals that volunteer at and attend this event. Special guests included the USAF, Jane Wicker a aerobatic pilot and wing walker, and the Discovery Channel's Sarah Fraher!
May: Weekend Flight to New Orleans
An over 1,600NM round trip to the Big Easy! The flights are always interesting with great stops along the way. Our destination had so many fun sights to offer!
June: Bob's Surprise Birthday Trip 1 and 2
It's so hard to keep a secret in when it is just too cool and for someone you love! Amazingly enough, I was able to keep Bob's birthday surprise trip from him for many months. Where did we fly to? The world's largest radio telescope, hiking, dinner on a historic railroad, and playing in waterfalls!
June: Formation Flight with a Rans and a Pitts
My friend invited me to fly one morning in his Rans...my boss needed aerial shots of his plane...perfect timing :)
June: (Wow! Lot's of fun stuff happened in June) My airplane tattoo!
A promise made to myself long ago. The title is self explanatory.
July: We got married! Of course we had an aviation themed reception!
We met through our love for aviation and four years later we were married. Of course our wedding had to be aviation themed! Unfortunately, it's hard to find fun ideas for aviation weddings online, so I described what we did in this post.
August: Our version of the Top Gun flyby in a balloon!
Flying once again with Tailwinds over Frederick-Top Gun style!
October: Fall formation flight with friends
A flight of two Glasairs and a Rans into Luray, VA. We visited the Luray Caverns and enjoyed a delicious $100 hamburger over fun conversation!
October: A flight to reunite at Cedar Point
I had grown up visiting America's Roller Coast every summer with my friend, Rachel. It had been far to long so we decided to reunite at our favorite amusement park!
December: Landing at a winery
The title pretty much says it. Kyle and I took the short flight in his Rans to Linganore Wine Cellars to pick up some wine!
Not pictured: December: Sunset Descent and Puppy Pickup Flight because they were just posted :)
Happy New Year! Wishing all my readers only the best in today and for the years to come!
