Carla Mueller – Pelion

I have been flying for the past 15 years, I have worked for the FAA as a Light Sport Aviation Safety Inspector, I have flown for the NCDENR as a Forestry Pilot in a C185, I flew the Grand Canyon as a tour pilot in Piper navajo’s, I flew for a Start up airline in Jetstream 3100s, and I flew for USA Jet Freight airways in a Falcon 20 Jet. Most recently, I flew for Bankair in their Mitsubishi MU2b aircraft out of Teterboro,NJ. Then they lost the contract about the same time when my mom had a severe stroke, so I became a FT caregiver for her. Now she is better, and I’m trying to go back to FT flying again. I am flight instructing in my own Cessna 150 aircraft out of Pelion Airport, SC 6J0, trying to grow that airport. Come on out and see me.

Kathleen Hegenberger – Charleston

I have been a CFI for 15 years and came to Charleston in 1999 to teach at JZI. I now primarily do BFR’s and IPC’s and will do tailwheel instruction in your airplane. I presently fly a Cirrus SR22TN and an L-19 Birddog. My flying at this time involves a lot of cross country flights all over the US and the Bahamas in the Cirrus and cross country and mountain flying in the birddog. Last year I added a seaplane rating in a cub. For a short time I flew a Cirrus for Satsair, an air taxi service, out of Greenville, SC and have been flying a Cirrus SR22TN for four years privately. I am based at JZI in SC and BZN (Bozeman) in Montana in the summer months.

At this time I am the president of the Women in Aviation Palmetto Pride Chapter in Charleston, SC and I am the SC Liaison for the Recreational Aviation Foundation where we are presently working to amend the SC RUS to include “aviation activities” to protect landowners who have airstrips on their property from liability. If you are interested in Cirrus instruction in your airplane or need a BFR or IPC please give me a call. I would also be happy to do tailwheel instruction in your airplane as well.
