Mar 2011 Lisa Martin (Wyoming)
Lisa Martin is based at (KWRL), Worland Municipal Airport, Worland, Wyoming.
I got my private license in 1989 while 7 1/2 months pregnant with my oldest child. The family priority slowed my flying some, although my husband and I owned and operated our own aviation business in Montana spraying and doing other surveys with airplanes and helicopters.
In 2003, we moved to Wyoming and my husband went to work for Sky Aviation. As my boys grew up and I had some more time to fly, I added on an instrument rating in about 2006.
We owned a C180 at that time (previously we owned a 7GCBC and an Aeronca Champ. When my boys both graduated and moved on, I poured myself into getting a commercial rating with a Piper Comanche. Soon as I got that rating we sold it to return to the fun and spot-on convenience of taildragger flying. Bought our 150 hp Super Cub in Oct of 2010 and are having so much fun just bee-boppin’ around!
We’re are anxiously looking forward to some backcountry, fly-in camping trips this summer in surrounding states (Utah, Idaho and Montana). Schafer’s Meadow was our home away from home when we lived in Cut Bank, MT. You just can’t get in to many of those places with a Comanche!
