Jennifer Wenk (North Carolina)

Jennifer Wenk is based at KMRH, Michael J. Smith Field, Beaufort, North Carolina. I’ve always walked around facing skyward but I didn’t actually get my pilot’s license until 13 years ago, well after my kids were well established in their own lives. With the encouragement of my husband I fulfilled my lifelong dream and am ever so happy that I did! I’ve owned a Grumman AA1B f... Read More »

Trish Volker is based at KIAG, Niagara Falls International Airport, Niagara Falls, New York. We met Trish at AirVenture 2014 and were thrilled Trish joined us for Ray Johnson’s “Vintage In Review” program on Thursday, Ladies Day! She’s flying one COOL taildragger.

Robin Blevens (Kentucky)

Robin Blevens is based at KLOU, Bowman Field Airport, Louisville, Kentucky and is working on her tailwheel endorsement. My name is Robin and I received my PPL in March 2014. I own, and fly, a 172. I told myself when I received my PPL, I would earn my tail wheel endorsement since everything that I have read states tail wheels make you a better stick and rudder pilot. I took my first lesson July 30,... Read More »

Tammie Searles (Texas)

Tammie Searles is based at T82, Gillespie County Airport, Fredericksburg, Texas. “Me holding the keys to my new plane!” I just moved to Texas (T82) from Cali (E16). Next week my husband and I are flying (commercially) to SJC to jump in our own airplanes and fly them back here to Texas. I’m excited to fly my Citabria N1926G that far. It will be the longest cross-country for me. Ev... Read More »

Joyce Wilson is based at 4O4, Bogata, Texas. I’ve been flying for just over 7 years and am an instrument rated private pilot. I just got a 2005 Aviat Husky A1-B this year and built a 1200′ grass strip on our ranch. As a friend of mine said, it’s a little tight but it will keep the amateurs out.  :-). I wanted to learn on a stick and rudder taildragger to help make me a better ove... Read More »

Lori Olson     (Wyoming)

Lori Olson (Wyoming)

Lori Olson is based at Gillette-Campbell County Airport, Gillette, Wyoming. I spent many hours of my childhood in the backseat of a Cessna 180 and a PA-11 with my father as PIC. My earliest memories include landing on the dirt road close to my house, or the field behind our shelter belt. It wasn’t unusual for me to stare at my father’s profile from the backseat and think he was magic. ... Read More »
