My First Transport

Postby Koopper on Sun Nov 17, 2013 4:19 pm

I am a pilot who recently signed on with Pilots N Paws and flew my first transport mission yesterday. My friend (also a pilot) and I flew an adorable little Cairn terrier named Maddie from near Lexington, Ky to just south of Birmingham. We were originally slated to fly the first half of a multi leg trip, but due to low IFR conditions all over the south east, the pilot of the first leg couldn't go. I felt so strongly that we had to get Maddie to her foster, so Ramona and I flew the entire trip - about 600 NM in all. We loved every minute of the trip. Even the 3 hours battling strong headwinds. I can't WAIT to do it again. Such wonderful people in the rescue world.
