Student pilot and high school senior Kaitlyn Gallegos

I am a huge AvGeek! I have been flying since I was 14 years old and can’t get enough of it! I took Private Pilot Ground School at Palomar College and passed with the highest grade in the class. I then was a recipient of the AOPA AV8RS Scholarship and the San Diego Antique Aircraft Association Scholarship. Additionally, I am the current Operational Vice President of San Diego Aviation Explorer Post 120! I also am a member of WAI, AMA, IAC, and AOPA.

My goal in aviation is to become a Bush Pilot and start my own bush flying business. After I get my PPL, I want to start on my tailwheel endorsement in order to work towards my Bush piloting goals ASAP.
