Piloting My Way Into a Book!

I’m so excited to finally be able to share this with everyone. Back in 2019, I took up then seven year old Stella for a scenic and aerobatic flight. She handled everything like a pro – truly a future pilot. We did a bunch of aerobatics and flew over Niagara Falls. I let her fly the plane back towards the airport and she did great! This flight inspired her mother to write another book, following Stella’s Stories From Around the Globe – Japan. Her second book teaches young folks (and old!) about becoming a pilot. I had the pleasure of editing the book and provided aviation knowledge and insight. I’m so proud to present Stella’s Stories From Around the Globe – Stella and Lizzy Take Flight by Sheri Burke!

Sheri did an amazing job making this educational and engaging book, for all ages! And could Stella and I be any more adorable in our cartoon state?!

As if I wasn’t honoured enough to be part of this, Sheri took it to another level when she committed to donate $1 of every book sold to the MS Society. I’m so touched by this compassion and generosity.

I can’t wait to take Stella up again, to continue our flying adventures. Sheri and I will also be working on a fun and interactive website about aviation and how to fly. I’m excited about this new endevour – stay tuned!
