Woohoo!! A private pilot is born!
Cammi Benson, who started flying in a Cessna 140 when she was only 15, now has more than aÂ Tailwheel Endorsment. Cammi passed her checkride with flying colors on July 25 and is now a PrivateÂ Pilot. Cammi has a well-rounded logbook. Sheâ€™s also flown helicopters, aerobatic airplanes, sailplanesÂ and even jets. Thatâ€™s one Benson down and one to go. Cammiâ€™s mom, Julie, is also an LLT member andÂ will be taking her checkride soon.
The Bensons are responsible for the new look and friendly atmosphere at the Sisters Eagle Airport (6K5)Â in Sisters, Oregon. Itâ€™s also the home of Tailwheel Town, where LLT Scholarship winners go to get aÂ Tailwheel Endorsement or Stick and Rudder Master Class.
