Feb 2012 Elizabeth Reese (Colorado)
Elizabeth Reese is based at KGJT,Â Grand Junction Regional Airport, Grand Junction, Colorado.
I was born in 1976 and grew up in North Carolina. I moved to Colorado in 2001 and bounced around a bit until December, 2005 when I moved back to Colorado to stay. My husband has been a private pilot since he was in high school, and he motivated me to learn to fly after he flew us from Colorado to Montana for our honeymoon in 2008.
I am currently a student pilot, and I started my flight training in June, 2011 in a Luscombe. I soloed the Luscombe in September. My husband and I own a 1941 J4 Cub which has been in his family since 1958, and I just soloed in the Cub today, February 12, 2012! 🙂
I am looking forward to completing my training in the Cub, and my husband and I are excited about our plan to go to Osh Kosh (for the first time ever) this year for the 75th anniversary of the Piper Cub. Hope to see you there!!!
