Published in Midwest Flyer – June/July 2020 issue
While I cherish my privilege of flight from hot-air-balloons to multi-engine aircraft and warbirds, Kathy Vesely (MnDOT Office of Aeronautics) has been the HEART of keeping my privilege of flight alive.
Kathy re-awakened, re-energized airports in Minnesota and surrounding areas. Kathy’s never-ending energy for flying enlightened a spectrum of local, state, and federal government agencies to see, feel, and understand not just the micro, but also the macro long-term asset advantage of KEEPING general aviation alive and functioning. Because of Kathy, we help keep enlightening young people interested in their future of flying along with our nation’s future of flying.
I wish there were a way of facilitating, providing Kathy an invaluable THANK YOU for re-invigorating our necessary arteries of continued aviation growth into the future. We can each take the privilege of saying thank you to Kathy Vesely.
