A Jill ‘nugget of wisdom’; never take “NO” for an answer. http://cumberlink.com/news/local/carlisle-woman-gives-insight-into-life-as-a-fighter-pilot/article_6e60d... Read More »

Colleen M Keller is based at KSEE, Gillespie Field Airport, San Diego/El Cajon. I got my private pilot’s license in 1992 after several flights in Navy jets as a civilian analyst convinced me that I wanted to be a pilot.
