June 15, 2022 – Congratulations to Minnesota 99 Lisa Karan!

She did her first solo in a Piper Warrior at KANE on June 15, 2022. After a day of passing showers and thunderstorms, the evening turned perfect, and Lisa did three beautiful takeoffs and landings. Wishing you continued joy in your flight training!

May 17, 2022 – Congratulations to Minnesota 99 Brenda Hanson! She passed her Instrument check ride on May 17, 2022, at ANE with Barb Mack. It was an especially challenging check ride as her plane does not have GPS, and the Gopher VOR was out of service today.So she and Barb had to do some crazy creative work to get in the required approaches and holds. Busy traffic at different airports also made things more challenging, but she did it!Brenda flies a 172 out of Kadot Aero at South St. Paul Fleming. We are so happy for your accomplishment today, Brenda! Way to go!

April 25, 2022 – Congratulations to our own Carmen Kivisto! She is in Del Rio, TX and has begun her flight training for the Air Force Guard. 

April 25, 2022 – Congratulations goes to Erin Koelling for winning the Richard J. Santori Scholarship (managed by the Chicago Area Chapter).  We are so happy for you Erin!  This and the Chapter Scholarship she was awarded at our March meeting will certainly help her finish her Commercial.
