Feb 2018 Mary Fairbanks (California)
Mary Fairbanks is based atÂ KLHM,Â Lincoln Regional Airport/Karl Harder Field,Â Lincoln, California.
I fly King Airs for a charter company in Sacramento, and I have a tiny FBO in Mendocino, CA at KLLR. I love to teach and I do Ground instruction on a sliding scale so anyone who wants to learn, can, regardless of financial need. I also love and support GA by putting rental cars at remote airports so people can go somewhere when they fly in. Our latest venture is E45!
I LOVE inspiring people to fly! Creating pilots is a hobby of mine. Currently I’m studying for CFI so I can add that to my ground instruction. I want to keep tailwheel flying alive and well, and I think you ladies are Amazing! Thank you for doing what you do.
