The 7B2 Experience

Thank all of you again for the opportunity that you guys gave her these past two weeks. Haley is sure that she is absolutely in love with flying now that she has begun the process, and she is planning on taking lessons over the next several years in order to get her pilot’s license. She is still talking about it!!!

Nice, professionally run private airport. I came in with an Aztec, and was greeted on the radio and parked near the door, but with plenty of room to pull in and out…Very friendly welcoming airfield. Thanks!

Sage really enjoyed last week’s aviation camp.  Thanks so much for such a great program.

One of the things she really liked about last week was being part of the team, and meeting other kids.

It is difficult to get a 14 year old excited about camp, but you managed to do it. Riley. had a great time. He learned so much, and is enthusiastic about continuing his education.
