She has had an opportunity to fly with Hope Air’s volunteer pilots – she loved the experience. “The pilots are very sociable, very easy going. I have a background in mechanical engineering, so I was very inquisitive of the planes. One of the pilots was very willing to answer any questions I had, and he even let me steer the plane a little bit.”
“ This is a great cause, and I wish more people would donate. It could be your parents, your grandparents, and you never know what the future holds. ”
Shawna says she has also had good experiences when flying commercially. “I have never been looked down upon because of a third party paying for my ticket when flying commercially.” Overall, Shawna has nothing but positive things to say about her experience.
