Happy leap year! I am proud of my daughter Laetitia who has clocked up 14 hours of glider flying and seems to enjoy it! Wherever it takes her I can guarantee it will be a life skill. Thank you to Margaret Lamb who kindly sent her book “Flying Colorado Mountain Weather” for my continued learning of mountain flying and feedback. Margaret is an international NZAWA member and I am honoured to receive a copy of her book published in 2015.

The Institute for Women Of Aviation Worldwide (iWOAW) is proud to announce that support from iWOAW’s business members and public donations make it possible for iWOAW to offer additional flight training cash prizes to First to Solo™ Challenge winners in 2016.

Happy New Year Association and I wish you all many smooth landings whatever the endeavour you choose to pursue.

We would like to wish you all a very enjoyable Christmas and best wishes for 2016! Hopefully many of you have been able to enjoy the lovely summer days that have been around this week. Fingers crossed its the start of some great flying weather! Take care and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year!

Now windy spring has arrived. I have recently completed an eleven day flying tour working around the forecast gale force wind. We successfully completed our tour and managed to enjoy our beautiful South Island within the confines of the weather conditions.

It has not been all that long since the NZAWA Rally held in Waipukurau during Queens Birthday Weekend in June 2015. But I seem to fit in many activities between then and now. First up is my initiation to Oshkosh EAA Airshow during July 2015 thanks to FLYINN.
