Our next Chapter 1361 General Meeting will be on August 5th at 9 am in the Community Room upstairs in the Reno-Stead Terminal Building.
In August we will be hosting another guest speaker, CarolAnn Garratt. CarolAnn , a resident of Gainesville, Florida, is a former manager with a Fortune 500 company. She earned her private pilot license in 1978 and her instrument rating in 1980. In 1996, she completed her commercial license and bought a Mooney in 2000. After her mother suffered and died from ALS, she flew around the world in 2003 to raise awareness and donations for ALS. Not content to just fly, CarolAnn built her first plane between 2004 and 2006 and took up flying gliders in 2014. She has over 6000 hours and flies more than 250 hours a year including flying students with the EAA Young Eagles program, the sick and needy with Angel Flights, and instructing cadets with the Civil Air Patrol. In 2015, she flew her homebuilt RANS S-7S to Alaska and back.
Her presentation will cover some of her flying experiences, including her three trips around the world in her Mooney.
