Beloved Team Member Passes
We are very saddened by the loss of Mario, my husband and #1 fan. He passed away at home on Monday, November 17th, 2008. Mario was a great inspiration to me and was solely responsible for encouraging me to embark on the journey of learning to fly. It was an honor and a privilege to be his business partner, best friend and wife for the past 20 years; and to be his personal pilot for the last journies of his lifetime. We will all miss him dearly; but he will fly with me, in my heart, forever.

"Wild Bill":  We are very saddened to hear the news of the loss of our friend, Bill Walker. Bill was killed in his Yak 52 March 26th while performing with his aerobatic team, Red WildBill.JPGWildBill1.JPGThunder, in the Wings Over Flagler Airshow in FL. Click HERE a short clip of an interview with Bill from the 2009 Sparta Airshow. Bill took me for a ride in his Yak 52 on March 12 - just 2 weeks ago, after we finished painting the compass rose at SRB. Note the smiles on our faces - this photo was shot after our photo mission getting aerial shots of the new compass rose from the Yak.
