UPDATE ON HOWARD AND HALEY'S FANTASTIC VOYAGE!!! After spending 4 nights in Vancouver, WA. waiting on the smoke to clear, the crew was able to depart in their little 1946, 65 HP Taylorcraft and head to Houston. At this writing, they are safe and sound in Breckenridge, TX. The flight carried them through the Columbia River Gorge, then south along the Snake River and into the Salt Lake Valley where they navigated the pass through the Wasatch Mountain Range into Wyoming. A southeasterly route was then taken through Colorado and into the panhandle of Texas and onward to Breckenridge where they are temporarily stuck due to the tropical storm.

As a note, this entire route of 1771 NM is being flown using only a sectional chart, watch, and a compass. The aircraft has no electrical system, no radio and no navigation equipment. Strictly time, speed, and distance following roads, railroads, and rivers. This is the kind of training you receive at Texas Flight!!! Stick and rudder, sight and sound, seat-of-the-pants flying when technology fails.

The pictures tell the story, and Hayley can swing a prop with the best of them!! The final pic in this series is a collage of a lady who did a "Flight Across America" that was the cover of LIFE Magazine on September 16, 1940, and one of Hayley 80 years later.

DO IT RIGHT, AND SEE THE SIGHTS, AT TEXAS FLIGHT!!! ON THE GROUND, OR IN THE AIR, TEXAS FLIGHT CAN GET YOU THERE!!

Getting your advanced certificates, ratings and endorsements doesn't have to be "all work, and no play," and here at Texas Flight, we make it fun - all the while focusing on the mission at hand of training you to be a safe and knowledgeable pilot.

Texas Flight Instrument/Commercial student, Hayley Gillen, and Instructor Kathleen Morgan, recently completed Hayley's IFR and Commercial cross-country requirements in our G1000 equipped CE-182T complete with NEXRAD Radar. In addition, she was able to obtain her 10 hours of TAA requirements and receive a High Performance endorsement....all in one trip!!!

The girls departed KDWH IFR with approaches in Lufkin, Meridian, MS, and finally Anniston, AL, where they reportedly picked up some hatching eggs for Howard from world renowned La Fleche breeder, Chris McCary.

After re-fueling, they began their VFR leg by flying south to Moton Field in Tuskegee, AL, the birthplace of the famed Tuskegee Airmen where they toured the historic grounds and rested for the night.

The next morning, they began the 250 NM leg of the Commercial cross-country by flying from Tuskegee to McComb, MS, where they visited the Lynryd Skynyrd Memorial before heading back home.

As you can see from the pics, the girls had a blast....all the while keeping the mission mindset and gaining valuable experience outside the confines of East Texas.

HAYLEY AND KATHLEEN'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE!!

Combining cross-country requirements with beautiful scenery and historical sites is what flying is all about, especially when you can meet 3 requirements plus a High Performance endorsement in one trip!! (Instrument cross-country, 10 hours TAA, Commercial cross-country, and a High Performance Endorsement.)

Hayley Gillen, and her instructor, Kathleen Morgan, are pre-planning their flight in our CE-182T for June 4th and 5th to Anniston, AL, including a stop at Moton Field in Tuskegee, AL, to see the Tuskegee Airmen Historical Site. Then it's off to McComb, MS, and a solemn visit to the Lynyrd Skynyrd Memorial in Gillsburg, MS.

Hayley and Kathleen will be presenting a monetary donation from Texas Flight to the superintendent of the Tuskegee Airmen Historical Site to assist in preserving, maintaining, and enhancing this very important part of our aviation history.

Just a quick tip of my hat to Texas Flight for once again providing the best service and the best people in this business. Had a really great flight and Flight Review (BFR) yesterday 4/20/2020 with Kathleen Morgan. She was great to fly with and helped me get over a few areas in my flying that I let get a little rusty. I found her to be top notch as an instructor and as usual Texas Flights aircraft were in great condition and operating superbly. Let me just offer my endorsement once again to anyone looking for a place to learn to fly or stay current or advance your ratings.
Do you have any guidance on what ares the FAA has extended? For example currency, or written test expiration... I have a Flight Review due before the end of this month, is that extended too?
My Dad is 91 years old and just lost his 2nd wife. Is there anyone out there who would be interested in flying him to Greenville, NC from Beaumont, TX to be with his family. If so, please message me with your price and schedule. Thanks for your consideration.
For Sale: 1965 Piper Cherokee 180c (PA-28), Great aircraft to train and build time in, or just fly for fun. 125 hours (SMOH) since major engine and prop overhaul. Leather Interior. Has been kept hangered. Call or Text Tim at 281-772-1385 or [email protected] for more information.
LOST: Black Tri Fold Kneeboard Wed June 3rd About 2pm Between Texas Flight and T Hangers. If found please contact Ken 281-793-3974
Hey Texas Flight! 66JJ showed up in my new stomping grounds today! Great to see that bird, miss flying that great bird!

Had a great time hanging out with Wu-Tang Clan at the Harvey's Heroes Event.
Huge thank you to my instructor Travis Lee! And of course Texas Flight! I have wanted to fly since I was 14 when I had my first GA flight. Now a few years and 5 kids later I have solo‘d and am just about done with my ppl. My work/life schedule has not made it easy but I am on my way. Thanks again guys.
Congratulations to Eugene Gonzalez on his Instrument Rating. Moving on to commercial. Thanks to Wanda Collins as well.
