Training to obtain her Private Pilot's License, 23.5 hours logged.
If she could fly any model...
A bi-plane or a Piper Cub. Alice is more interested in the slow flight, low-altitude voyage. Her ideal fl ying experience would be one where she can feel the wind in her hair.
What sparked your interest in flying?
It had always been a fantasy of Alice's to fly (she'd imagine herself as a bush pilot in Africa or Alaska). When Alice was in high school, her best friend's dad was a pilot, and used to fly them from the Western slope of the Rockies to Aspen in his high-wing, four-seater (she doesn't recall the exact model), and she immediately loved it and had no qualms about flying in a smaller plane. She realized recently that if she was ever going to follow through with her dream, now was the time to do it!
What keeps you motivated in your flight training?
Alice has already gotten a commitment from her adventurous daughter to be her first passenger, and sharing that experience with her keeps her going.
