Five years ago Cathy Mighell launched a flight training, maintenance and aircraft sales program at Arlington Airport (AWO) in Washington state. Her operation grew and she has since upgraded to a Part 141 flight training operation, added a Part 135 charter operation and her newest venture is to sign on as a Remos Aircraft Light Sport Aircraft dealer and as head of a Remos Pilot Center.
“We’ve seen strong potential in this area for Sport Pilot licensing and ownership,” said Mighell. “Twenty students have already completed their licensing requirements and are now enjoying adventure flights around the Pacific Northwest. We think we now have more to offer in the LSA world than any other operation in the Northwest.”
Mighell has seven CFIs on staff and two mechanics who are trained for Rotax maintenance. She also has a busy schedule of events designed to attract the public, like Learn to Fly Day on May 21, a Poker Run and Feast on June 11, as well as participating in the annual Arlington Fly-In, which begins July 6 this year.
