Aug 2018 Christi Masi (Washington)
Christi Masi is based at KBFI,Â Boeing Field,Â Seattle, Washington.
I fly a Murphy Rebel Elite built by my husband. The planeâ€™s first flight was in 2000 and it’s taken me this long to finally tackle the challenge. I started flying in 2016 with a club. I changed to flying our plane at the end of 2016.
In Oct. 2017 my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer. He passed away in July of 2018. I love flying the plane he built and I will do everything I can to keep it in the air.
Ratings: Iâ€™m a student pilot…..still.
Aircraft flown: Cessna 162, 172,Â Murphy Rebel Elite
Thoughts on taildragging: My husband sparked my interest, but now the fire is mine. I always love a challenge and an opportunity to do things a little different.
