Summer Papple     (Canada)

Summer Papple (Canada)

Summer Papple is based at her family’s farm strip near CSX7, Sexsmith/Exeter Airport, Ontario, Canada. Our son started flight training in 2012, at age 12, with money he’d earned working on our farm. My husband and I figured that at our age we couldn’t justify the cost of learning to fly but that changed in May 2015 when we were invited to fly to a fly-in breakfast. It was my first time in a small plane and I loved it! Right after that we signed up for ground school and started flight training. I’ve thrown myself into avi... Read More »

Victoria Neuville     (Maryland)

Victoria Neuville (Maryland)

Victoria Neuville is based at KFDK, Frederick Municipal Airport, Frederick, Maryland. I’m a commercial pilot out of Frederick, MD. I haven’t flown actively for the past two years and am now ready to get back into it. I figured the best way was with some new training, so I decided it was finally time to become a CFI! I have several hours in my friend’s Decathlon and hope to be signed off for that this year as well. I love hosting events introducing others to aviation. My current work has brought me to schools, libraries, and ai... Read More »

Christine Malcomson-Young (California)

Christine Malcomson-Young is based at KHWD, Hayward Executive Airport, Hayward, California. Hi! I am a professional pilot flying for a major US airline.

Valerie Dereymaeker, Lady Bush Pilot, Invites you to FLY

Valerie Dereymaeker, Lady Bush Pilot, Invites you to FLY

I’m all about supporting lady taildragger pilots and their adventures and doesn’t matter if they’re based in America or half way around the world. There are so many awesome lady taildragger pilots including one special lady pilot I’ve been following for quite a while. She was a nosedragger pilot in Belgium until she got the taildragging bug during a trip to Alaska in 2015. That experience started a chain reaction that led to a PA-18 Supercub and life hasn’t been the same for her since. Let me introduce you to Valer... Read More »

Katie Marsh (North Carolina)

Katie Marsh is based at KJQF, Concord Regional Airport, Concord, North Carolina. I thrive on anything involving aviation, adventure, staying active and good (genuine) company.

I currently fly Cessna Caravan seaplanes for a company based in NYC during the summer months. We pick up passengers in the East River (midtown Manhattan) and take them to their weekend homes. In the winter months, t... Read More »
