Mar 2017 Anna Eppink (California)
Anna Eppink is based atÂ KMYF, Montgomery-Gibbs Executive Airport, San Diego, California.
I’ve loved flying since my earliest memories. I pestered my parents to learn when I was 13, soloed on my 16th birthday, and licensed shortly after turning 17. I took a hiatus in my 20s but am back! 6 years ago I learned to hang glide and enjoyed it so much I now have over 400 hours, fly long cross-country flights on thermal power (sometimes over 100 miles a flight) and compete among the best in the world.
I also instruct and am a tandem pilot. Hang gliding rekindled my love of aviation leading me back to general aviation where I am working toward my commercial and instructor certificates. I’m at home in the sky no matter what it is that got me there.
Some of the best aircraft are taildraggers and many are capable of things other aircraft aren’t!
