Dec 2018 Michelle Snodgrass (Indiana)
Michelle Snodgrass is based at KCFJ, Crawfordsville Regional Airport, Crawfordsville, Indiana.
I’m a mother to 3 wonderful children; Michael (18), Autumn (4), and Ainsley (3). I’m married to a very loving and supportive man, Taylor, who is flight training with me. I work as a pharmacist for a retail chain and also have a Master’s degree in theology. While studying for my theology degree I used to bike by the airport and dream of flying. I never pursued this dream because I thought I couldn’t do it as a female. I forgot the dream and moved on with my life. This year I went to the Dayton Airshow. As I watched Vicky Benzing send her plane into tumbles, I realized my excuses were crushed and it was time to give the dream a try.
Ratings: Student pilot
Aircraft flown: Cessna 172 and Super Decathlon
Dream Taildragger: Pitt’s Special or Extra 300
Thoughts on taildragging: I love taildraggers because they are awesome aerobatic planes. Also, they have sticks and no yokes! I don’t like yokes (short people problems, always jamming into my legs when I can actually reach the pedals).
