My Flying Days

My airplane20220422_edited.jpg

I was assigned to the Air Traffic Control field While in the military.  Being in that field I had the opportunity to do some flying which gave me the bug.  After getting out of the military I joined the FAA which allowed me to use my VA benefits for my flight training.  Through that I was able to get my commercial, instrument, flight instructor and multi-engine ratings.  One year I commercial fished on Lopez Island so I purchased a share of the above airplane for transportation from Wenatchee where I was working at the time.  From then on whenever I traveled from Wenatchee I would usually fly since there are few direct routes from Wenatchee by car.  This was a convenient way to get to places.  A couple of years we had spent Christmas Eve at home and Christmas with family in Klamath Falls. When I was transferred to Seattle I no longer needed the airplane so that ended my flying days.

                My sister Nikki
This picture depicts who she really was.  She
was an angel  who was loved and admired by
everyone.  I am who I am today because of her.
Unfortunately she died at age 47 of ovarian cancer.
