"Do or do not. There is no try.” - Yoda
“Do" is exactly what awesome aviatrix and avid Star Wars fan Kaitlin Hughes did today as she used the force (her own amazing abilities) to demonstrate her private pilot skills like she was making the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs. End result, Kaitlin Hughes is now a private pilot. Holy Snokes!! The force is strong with this one. She went after her flight certificate like an exogorth going after the Millennium Falcon. All while attending college, working full time, pit crewing at the Air Races, and being the Treasurer extraordinaire for the local Women in Aviation chapter. What’s next for this Red Leader? Start logging those cross country hours for her Instrument Rating. You can’t stop her progress any more than you can stop the suns from setting. Great job Kaitlin and awesome job as well to her Scruffy-looking Nerf Herder instructor, Ethan Chinowksy! You are both one in a Maul-lion.
