Apparently my degree in aviation has no weight anymore – now mathematicians can tell us definitively what happens to our missing planes.
I love it!

Good Morning Everyone!

Today, I’m reporting live from Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine with a feature on Air Show pilots and how they become certified to fly in air shows! Although this story has been complete for a while, we decided to wait until air show season was in full swing to feature this story. It’s crazy how these pilots learn how to fly these dare-devil maneuvers but even crazier as to how OTHER air show pilots are the ones to evaluate if these pilots are ready to fly!
I would like to thank everyone that helped make this story possible – Starting with Tony at Air & Space for giving me the opportunity to write for such a prestigious publication, then of course Professor Steve Master at Embry-Riddle for working with me on this story. It takes multiple edits and rewrites to make a story like this satisfactory for the editor, writer and those being interviewed.
This story developed out of another one I wrote for Air & Space back in November. Professor Master worked with me tirelessly to get the first story broken down to two individual stories worthy of publication. Without his help, I would have never gotten this story polished enough to be published. His work on this story and others has been immensely helpful & without him, I wouldn’t have gotten into journalism in the first place.
I would also like to thank all those that took the time to interview with me. This includes the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) President John Cudahy, air show performer Debby Gary, Air show performer Scott “Scooter” Yoak, and Air Show Performer Patty Wagstaff. Additionally, thank you to Andreia Brown for getting me in touch with Scott Yoak!
And lastly – Thank you to all my readers that have taken the time to read all my stories. I’m truly shocked at how much I’ve gotten accomplished over the last few months with the support and encouragement from all my readers, friends and family. This has been a crazy but completely amazing ride. I hope you’ll continue to follow me as this journey progresses.

Where do you stand?
No I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet – Just been busy getting ready for the big move to OKC next week & saying my goodbyes to all my GREAT friends here in Daytona!
I have lots of stories in the works from the WAI conference BUT!!! News never stops (even for my lagging in transcriptions) therefore a news story literally FELL into my hands today and I just HAD to put it to the top of my to-do list and write about it RIGHT THIS SECOND.
An editor of The News Hub found my blog & Facebook page and asked me to write a news style article for them about Germanwings 9525…
So that’s what I did.
I always feel terrible writing when tragedy strikes, but as a journalist it literally is my job to keep people informed. So without further rambling… here is my latest published article about Germanwings 9525. #InDeepSorrow
I would REALLY appreciate if you all would SHARE my link and UPVOTE my post on The News Hub – the way the pay structure works is I only get paid if I get LOTS of exposure. I really appreciate it!
Another one bites the dust!
I was published this week in my school’s newspaper (on the front page!!!), The Avion, for a story I wrote about the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System phasing in ADS-B. Want to know more? Read the whole article HERE!
The funny part about this story was I pitched to to a fellow blogger (who has a LOT of aviation journalism experience) and she didn’t want to pick it up… so I changed a few things around and made it better suited for my school’s paper and they picked it up the week I submitted it. It’s funny how that worked out, I thought I had spent all this time researching and writing this article only for it to be turned down… yet I actually got it in print media rather than online. (And kudos from the editor!)
Thanks for following my journey.
Till next time!
