Carol Ann Garratt - TWO Around the World Flights!
Ms. Garratt earned her private pilot license in 1978 and her instrument rating in 1980. In 1996, she completed her commercial license and bought a Mooney in 2000. Not content to just fly, CarolAnn built her first plane in 2006. Today she owns and flies three different aircraft. She flies over 400 hours a year including flying students with the EAA Young Eagles program, the sick and needy with Angel Flights, and instructing cadets with the Civil Air Patrol. Carol Ann is a former manager with a Fortune 500 company.
After her mother suffered and died from ALS (better known as Lou Gehrig's disease), she flew around the world in 2003 to raise awareness and donations for ALS. Her speaking engagements and book about the flight, "Upon Silver Wings", have raised $80,000 for ALS research. She has completed a second around the world flight.
