Mar 2014 Andrea Parker (Washington)
Andrea Parker is based at 1W1Â Grove Field Airport, Camas, Washington and flies for Alaska Airlines.
I started flying on my fifteenth birthday after my parents gave me a gift certificate for a few lessons to see if my constant talk of airplanes was â€œjust a phase.â€ The rest is history…
I’m thankful to have had my family and friends encouraging me over the years. It has been with their positive influence (and a lot of hard work) that my fifteenth birthday flight gave way to a career in aviation.
Even with all the everyday fun and challenges brought by big airplanes and instrument flying, a grassy landing in my very own J-3 is still my favorite escape.
