Bonnie is Flying High

Updated: Mar 25, 2022

A young women learning to fly a drifter aircraft

Bonnie Penfold, from “Old Bombine ” property at Meandarra, has always had a desire from a young age to follow in the footsteps of her father Dan Penfold.

Her training started on 8th September 2019 but had a few hurdles along the way with teacher training then the interruptions from COVID. Undaunted she achieved her first solo on 16th January 2022 and her RAAus Pilot's Certificate on 12th March 2022.

Bonnie tells me that she is now off to pick up her recently acquired Drifter so that she can enjoy the pleasures of flight whenever she wants to from the home property and observe her dad flying his Robinson R44 helicopter.
