Vickie originally received her Private Pilot Certificate in 1982 in Texas, flying for fun for a few years. 30 years later, an opportunity presented itself to continue her training in Los Angeles, and she started flying again in 2013. Vickie now has her Commercial Certificate with a Instrument Rating and is working on her CFI Certificate. She says, "I knew if I could fly in LA, I can pretty much fly anywhere! I’ve experienced things in this airspace that I never imagined in Texas."
