Aviation Insurance Resources Flight Award

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

“My mom is taking flying lessons. I’m so impressed,” said Erik Michaelson.

His mother, Toni, had earned the flight award sponsored by Aviation Insurance Resources through the Fly it Forward event that introduced 244 girls and women to aviation this March. Enrolled at Frederick Flight Center, her first lesson was Monday.

Teaming up with a female flight instructor, Toni says her lesson was “awesome” and that her flight instructor, “immediately made me feel right at ease in the cockpit and after take-off had me flying the airplane in no time.”

Toni met many challenges common with student pilots, “The hardest part was taxiing out to the runway – my feet and legs were not cooperating with my brain, namely trying to stay on top of the yellow line.”

“Most people do not realize that Toni has a really adventurous spirit and can do absolutely anything she sets her mind to.” and “I am impressed and want to fly with her some time!!!”
