Katie Pribyl (Virginia)

Katie Pribyl is based at KFDK, Frederick Municipal Airport, Frederick, Maryland. I grew up on a cattle ranch in Montana and much of my early exposure to GA was backcountry flying in taildraggers. So when it came time to make my first airplane purchase, it’s where I naturally gravitated. I purchased my 1956 Cessna 180 in October 2014 and have loved every single hour in it. I foresee spending ... Read More »

Jill Manka is based at KGIF, Winter Haven’s Gilbert Airport, Winter Haven, Florida. Greetings All! My name is Jill Manka.
