Kathy knew it was her thing after the first spin. †

With the expert help of Steve Wolf, her aerobatic instructor, Kathy began her training in a Zlin 242L†. and continued it in the Pitts S-2B. †Kathy logged 400 hours her first year of flying!

Taking instruction from Aerobatic icon Sean D. Tucker , she learned how to tumble and received her 500 foot aerobatic waiver from Wayne Handley.
