Some Information on Learning to Fly.
Freeflight Aviation’s winner of the one-hour Introductory Flight during the “Fly It Forward Day” was Maria Wolford, of Fort Dix, New Jersey. For Wolford, the flight was a great first step toward getting her pilot license. Wolford, 45 and married to an Active Duty Air Force First Sergeant, moved to New Jersey from Warner Robins, GA a year and half ago when her husband was assigned to McGuire Air Force Base. She enjoys going hunting, fishing, clamming, crabbing, and relaxing on the boat the couple keeps in Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD. “Watching Air Shows and certain military planes train and do ‘touch and go’ have always had my attention.” says Wolford. “So living under the flight line right now in Browns Mills is actually pretty cool. And, just recently, I started watching Flying Wild Alaska and Alaska Wingmen.” Wolford’s first experience in a non-commercial aircraft was when a friend took the couple for a flight in his Mooney aircraft. “That was a ride that made me really think ‘I want to do this.’” Wolford explains. “For New Year’s, another friend took us to Martha’s Vineyard in his Cessna 172 and since then my wanting to learn to fly has been even stronger. Then the next thing I know my husband signed me up for Women’s Week in Aviation and I got to go up with Rob. I don’t think I quit smiling the rest of the day after that flight!” Wolford credits the support of family and friends for taking her that much closer to realizing her dreams of becoming a pilot. She thanks her husband and Freeflight for “giving me the extra push to go forward with this next adventure.”
