Description

The Kiwi and Emu are both flightless birds but Kathy describes herself as "The kiwi bird who does fly.' She is a grandmother who when back in her home country of New Zealand took up flying Cessna's at thirty-eight. She later moved to Western Australia and got her aerobatic endorsement and at forty-eight became Western Australia's first female licenced to fly a microlight. A microlight is also referred to as a trike. The wing is like a hang gliding wing and Kathy describes the aircraft as being like a motorbike in the sky! With her husband, Gary she towed it around Australia over a two year period, and flew in places like Kakadu looking for crocodiles! This story tells the many challenges she faced, including one frightening experience before the journey had begun! Kathy gives some insight also into some of Australia's beautiful outback country . You will agree Kathy is one gutsy lady. Kathy will be making available a second version with a lot more pictures in but of course to be expected, it will be priced at a higher price to cover the printing . The kindle version has colour photos.show more

About Mrs Kathy B Little

Kathy was born in Northland, New Zealand in 1950 and is the second of three sisters. Her interest in flying came from her father who learnt to fly when she was nine years old. Her interest was put on hold until her youngest child was at high school and she then had finances to realise her dream. Kathy has three adult children. She obtained her General Aviation licence at the age of forty, when as she says she also became a grand mother and a divorcee. Soon after she travelled to England, the birthplace of her mother. She spent a year there and did some flying while there. Kathy also visited other countries while there but soon returned to live in Australia where she then had two grand children. Kathy is now the proud grandmother of nine. She loves to travel and to write. Articles of her flying experiences have been published in flying magazines. Kathy spent most of her life teaching but is now retired and spending some time in Bali where she found the time to finally publish this story. Her other interests are country music. She did four years hosting community radio in Western Australia. Kathy also enjoys photography and making video films. You can find some of these on youtube.
