This weekend there was a reunion for a young adult church group I used to be very involved with back in Michigan. I was excited for the good flying weather as I have served mostly as a passenger for the last few months. While I had taken the controls, I had yet to do a landing during that period of time. There was always an excuse or a reason (dog on lap, falling asleep, I don't know how to land a tailwheel...etc) but this weekend I declared "I'm doing it darnnit!" And I did.

It has been two months since I submitted my paperwork to renew my special issuance medical that had lapsed. I completely expected to wait on hold again and to just be told it wasn't ready yet. Amazingly, I got through right away and they said it was mailed out to me this morning! The super nice gentleman on the line even told me to do the happy dance! So, insert "happy dance" here.

For a long time I was focused on the goal of becoming a professional pilot, but life experiences and various steps had slowly brought me to the decision that while I love to fly, I would not love flying for a living. But, I still wanted to work in aviation! When I started working at Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) it was just a job. Now, I am happy to say I have a career where I talk to people that share the same passions that I do on a daily basis!

My friend Kyle, has his Rans S7 up for sale on eBay. I've had some awesome times in that airplane and maybe now you will, too!

A model flips her long locks in the wind. A bride has a gorgeous up do. A lady shouts "yes" in the shower while lathering her shoulder length hair. Society says the epitome of femininity is long, shiny hair. At first when I joined the ranks of pixie cut women, I teared up, feeling that my femininity was lost. Later I learned that I had gained so much more. My face was no longer hidden from the world. I'm a pilot and I have a pixie cut.

Hi all! My apologies for my absence as of late. Not much (GA) flying has been happening as I was in the process of saving cash and prepping for a whirlwind trip through Peru with two of my girlfriends.
