The moment: My wife’s first solo
The pilot: Tasha Farmer
The place: Livingston County, Spencer J. Harvey Field (KOZW), Howell, MI
The aircraft: Diamond DA-20
The memory: On Thursday, February 28, my wife flew her first solo under the instruction of “Captain” Ron Megisi of Crosswinds Aviation. Aviation is a recent interest of Tasha. It has been a lifelong dream of mine and she has joined me in pursuit of our private pilot licenses.
I soloed just a couple of days earlier on February 26th. We are both working to complete our licenses by early summer. Our study of aviation has sparked interest in two of our children. Our youngest, 12 year old Oliver, has become a Young Eagle and is dreaming of one day earning his wings too! Tasha is having a blast and would like to one day be a helicopter pilot. Very proud of you sweetie!
