Hi Dave & Peggy:
I was Googling flying articles and found out about Midwest Flyer Magazine, and it had an article from a pilot I met a few times at some AOPA events in Iowa. I first met Yasmina Platt (formerly manager of AOPA’s Central Southwest Region) in April 2012, and later in September at an event in Atlantic, Iowa.
If you hear from Yasmina, please tell her I said “Hello.”
I finished my 9th grade at Chippewa Falls (Wisconsin) High School in 1972, and attended 10th grade, and part of my 11th grade, in Racine and Kenosha, Wisconsin.
