My husband, Steve, and I were lucky enough to come across an airplane club with a taildragger. So I embraced the moment, and earned my private pilot license in a 1956 Cessna 170A.

I am a Mechanical Engineer by day and the rest of the time I live and breathe flying. Michigan is incredibly scenic, and by air, it is breathtaking. At any moment, I have friends and family members standing in line to take air tours of the Great Lake State.

I love taking them along the lake shores and site seeing up near Traverse City and Mackinaw Island. Where ever we end up landing, N1441D draws a lot of “ooohs and aaahs”. It is truly a beautiful aircraft and a joy to fly.

I also fly a C-172, PA28-181, and am currently training in a Sikorsky S-52-3 Helicopter.
