Despite committing to make keeping PIC current a priority this summer, it hasn't happened. Life somehow seems to happen and my passion kept being saved for the next day or weekend, etc. Yesterday, I arrived home tired from a full day but decided we absolutely had to go out at least for a quick sunset flight and that's exactly what we (Turbo, Bob and I) did.

Most of you know by now of my latest endeavor: alongside my friend and co-author Kelly, I am self-publishing a series of children’s books featuring my flying fido and his sidekick, Olive.
Since we set upon this road last year, Kelly and I have been overwhelmed by the positive response from everyone from friends to complete strangers. It’s thanks to this support that we have come this far. But, we still have a ways to go! I’d love to ask for your support in any way that fits you best.

After successfully managing several events aimed at introducing girls and women to aviation—some local, some worldwide—Victoria Neuville Zajko was looking for a new project. She didn’t have to look far, because the source of inspiration was gnawing on a toy in her home.
Zajko and friend Kelly Kennedy have written a children’s book, Turbo the Flying Dog,loosely based on her own dog’s adventures. She and husband Bob adopted the pup in 2012 and brought him home in their Glasair. Since then, Turbo has become a familiar sight at Frederick Municipal Airport, and if the Zajkos are flying somewhere, he almost always can be found in the backseat of the Glasair, sporting Mutt-Muffs.

Carl kicks things off by bringing up a proposed rule regarding non-aeronautical uses of airport hangers. The comment period is open until September 5th. Airports that accept federal money, public or private, can only be used for aeronautical usage. Many airports are allowing people to store things like boats and cars in hangers, leaving pilots to complain that they do not have hanger space to store their aircraft. This led to a discussion of hanger homes.

The day I learned to fly I was 16 years old and just finished private pilot ground school. I was nervous as I hopped in the airplane, taking the controls for my discovery flight. The day I learned to fly was the day my Dad supported me and never doubted me. Although it was many years later that I would become a private pilot, I would always remember that day.
