Ruthie Wells (Indiana)

Ruthie Wells flies when possible at airports around Indianapolis. I met Ruthie a few weeks ago at an Indianapolis area airport. She had ridden her bicycle nearly 10 miles on a very cold day to get there. Ruthie told me she rides that bike everywhere and it’s her only mode of transportation. That may be something you do in NYC but it’s a really difficult thing when you live way out in t... Read More »

It has been with their po... Read More »

Karen Kalishek is based at KGRB, Austin Straubel International Airport, Green Bay, Wisconsin. I began flying at the mid-century mark, got bitten by the aviation bug and have become increasingly passionate about flying over the past 8 years.

Lucia Galgano is based at KCMA, Camarillo Airport, Camarillo, California. Even though I own a Bonanza, my favorite airplane is a Citabria.
