Carolyn Pasqualino is based at Poplar Grove Airport (C77), Poplar Grove, Illinois.
I started flying in 1974 and ended up marrying Mark, my flight instructor. Â We have owned our 1946 Cessna 120 since 1990 and it shares the hangar in our back yard with a Beech Debonair and Beech T34-B. Â We have lived at Bel Air Estates on the Poplar Grove Airport, since 1997 and love living on a residential airport.
The midwest is a haven for Sunday morning pancake breakfasts, and we enjoy flying to them almost every week in the summer. Â Since we’re just 100 miles from Oshkosh, we fly there every year for AirVenture too.
I’ve been a pilot for United Airlines for almost 26 years and am currently a captain on the Boeing 747-400. Â After all the changes in the airline industry the last decade, flying my own airplane is a lot more fun than airline flying!
