The IMC Clubs has appointed Victoria Kuo, the chief flight instructor of New Horizon Aviation, to be the Rhode Island Chapter President.
As a highly qualified volunteer Kuo was chosen to provide her expertise in flight education to the club, according to club officials. Rhode Island chapter meetings will take place every third Thursday at 6:30 p.m., starting in January 2012, and will be held at the Horizon Aviation offices, at T.F. Green Airport in Providence.
Kuo, a mother of four, is a former researcher at Rhode Island Hospital. After receiving a gift certificate to fly she began flying about 30 hours a month. Soon, she had found her life’s passion. “It was just the incredible feeling of taking off; it’s hard to describe in words,” she said.
From the start, she wanted to share this experience with others. She knew that teaching was something she enjoyed. “I feel like I have the opportunity to have an impact on aviation,” she said.
“Vicky was one of my CFI students. There is no better success and achievement for any teacher than watching his student accomplishing much higher skill levels then he could ever imagine. It is a pleasure to see Vicky to be able to provide such a high quality of aviation education. I would like to thank her for allowing us here at the Club to use her expertise,” said Radek Wyrzykowski, president of IMC Club International.
