Cherokees to Oshkosh began a tradition in 2010 which I am confident will continue to grow and promulgate. The enthusiasm that effervesced from the founding group will be the base which stands the test of time, and encourage future Cherokees to Oshkosh members to make the choice to join us. You may not be able to glean from the image above the energy of the 2013 group, however, we were all feeling the same sense of anticipation. If you decide to join us in 2014, be prepared to attend a mini-clinic of your choice, as well as coming in early to Waupaca to enjoy the family of aviators that are the essence of Cherokees to Oshkosh. Both venues will require effort on your part. However, if you take the time to speak with any of the pilots that flew with us in 2013, I am confident they will tell you the hard work paid off. That belief was evidenced upon landing at Oshkosh as I did not observe one pilot exit their aircraft in the North 40 without a smile!
As a newly minted pilot, when I first heard about C2O my initial reaction when I read the minimum requirements, was to say "see you in five years." Actually, I did say something similar, and decided to back out. At that point I received a number of emails encouraging me to join the group ensuring me that safety was the number one priority, and no one would let me get into trouble. It was suggested that I try a clinic and reserve judgment until then. I heeded the advice and headed for KJEF. I want to thank you all for making me feel welcome, for providing exceptional training, and for bringing me into your family.
