Feb 2011 Darlene Kellner (Pennsylvania)
Darlene Kellner is based at Hazelton Municipal Airport, Hazelton, Pennsylvania (KHZL).
When I discussed the idea of getting my pilot’s license with my husband he said, “If you are going to learn to fly, you are going to learn on a real airplane!” So we set out to find just the right real airplane for me to learn in, a taildragger. We found a wonderful Cessna 170 and purchased it. It was a wonderful aircraft and very forgiving of my inexperience. I have often said that the 170 flew me, I didn’t fly it.
The time came to move up to a little more power and capacity, so the logical move was to the Cessna 180 I currently fly.
