Although I’m not officially a pilot, due to my bad eyesight, I’m an awesome copilot for Mike.  I can do flight and fuel planning, handle all radio communication with ATC, assess radar weather, troubleshoot emergencies and program the flight deck like nobody’s business.  I’m also the mistress of the checklist – constantly making sure every step from preflight to final descent and shutdown is done in an orderly fashion.

Mike is an incredible pilot, well trained from his Air Force Vietnam days, not to mention Braniff Airlines.  He’s always kept a current private pilot’s license, and has thousands of hours in the saddle.  Smart, observant and an astute problem solver.
