Cathy Page flying STOL 85 "Honey Badger" has been flying for 32yrs. Getting her pilot license over one summer in WA set the hook and within a year she bought her first airplane, a Cessna 170B.
Since then she has owned a Pitts, a Bearhawk, and this 1949 Piper Clipper that she's flying today. She also has an RV6 and has flown many large formation flights, one setting a Guinness World Record for the largest close formation flight with 49 planes.
A Building trade Steamfitter in her early days allowed her to afford flying lessons. That all led to a career change and today she flies Airbus 320's for a US airline.
