Update: Flight award winner, Toni Michaelson

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

The trees are changing colors and the elections are coming near, both make for an interesting flight. Aviation Insurance Resources’ 2012 Women Fly it Forward flight award winner, Toni Michaelson, is quickly adding up hours in her logbook.

“While preparing to take off this morning in Frederick (having earlier been given special restrictions as to where we could fly today due to the president being at Camp David), we saw his five helicopters fly right over us as the president makes his way to Florida today. The other photo is us flying a few minutes later outside the restricted air space of DC. These were both pretty awesome sights to see, from the ground and the air.”

Toni Michaelson is quickly flying towards her private pilot certificate thanks to the help of Aviation Insurance Resources (AIR) during the Women Fly it Forward event in Frederick, MD this March. Her excitement is contagious as she shares a photo from her most recent flight lesson:


“This is a photo my flight instructor, Brenda, took (I was actually flying the plane) during my 2nd flight lesson in Frederick, Maryland on Monday. After take-off, she had me head west towards the Appalachian Mountains and take the plane up to an altitude of 4500 feet. As we approached the mountains, there was an enormous bank of clouds lined up along the western slope, and we could see the Appalachian Trail at the ridgeline where the clouds stopped. It looked just like the rolling surf of an ocean, extending as far north and south as you could see. What a truly spectacular sight it was, especially since the clouds started to dissipate within 15 minutes of us flying over them. All I can say is that it was an absolutely amazing day to be up in the air!”

AIR is excited to be a part of Women Fly it Forward again in 2013 and looks forward to igniting more passion in future women pilots.
