The moment: Flying with my Dad
The pilot: Britta Schroeder (right)
The place: Centennial Airport (KAPA), Denver, CO to Meadow Lake Airport (KFLY), Colorado Springs, CO.
The aircraft: C172S
The memory: My father always wanted to be a pilot for the Air Force or commercial airlines, but was never able to make his dreams come true, settling for a computer programming position with a major airline. He often encouraged me to pursue flying while I was a young adult, but it wasn’t until moving to Alaska that I realized aviation could open up a world of opportunities besides a career in the military or as an ATP.
