Turbo the Flying Dog's Flight Suit!

I had mentioned in my previous post that Turbo got a new flight suit. I bet you were all wondering how cute he looked in it? Adorable (and miserable) for course :) Since I forgot to put a photo up on that post, here it is now for your viewing pleasure. If you haven't already, be sure to follow him on Facebook!

Tennessee Museum of Aviation

In my previous post, I talked about a trip to the Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area of Tennessee with Bob and Turbo. Little did we know that our destination airport, KGKT, had an aviation museum! After a fun weekend in the Smokys, we spent some time at the museum waiting for the weather to clear a bit more before heading home.

A Fly-to Cabin Weekend


This winter was a hard one, with weather, business and personal life. It had been awhile since Bob and I took a mini-vacation, discovering new and fun places by air. It was time to fly away, to celebrate our love of flight, my last year with Women Of Aviation Week and to get some desperately needed R&R. My mother's cousin rents out two beautiful cabins in the Smokey's, so it was time to take advantage of that!

Another Women Of Aviation Week in the Record Books


So it's over! There's my fourth Women Of Aviation Week crossed out on my calendar! This year, I worked as U.S Team Leader and the event coordinator for the WOAW Opening Ceremony. I had passed on the reigns of my "baby" the Frederick, MD Women Fly it Forward event to the capable hands of the Sugarloaf Chapter of the 99s so I could better focus my efforts as U.S Team Leader.

March 3, 2014 in Latest News - United States

The eve before Women Of Aviation Week opening day, the East Coast became covered in a thick blanket of snow. The government, schools and the opening ceremony venue quickly closed. However the determined women of aviation said the show must go on!
