Tulip City Airport

My interest in flying began in college. There wasn’t any time to think about it though because I got married and began a family. I’m now 79 years old and after a friend took me for a ride in his plane, I decided it was finally time.

I began flying lessons with Barb Fleming at Tulip City Airport two years ago. Barb is a very good teacher, careful, safe and positive. I continue flying lessons in Florida during the winter and am working towards getting my pilot’s license this year.

When I’m up in the air, I love the feeling of having no boundaries and to be able to go wherever I want.
