Something amazing occurred at the Golden Age Aviation Museum in Bethel, PA, recently. 16-year-old Caroline Daugherty soloed. And while that in itself is pretty cool and reason for congratulations, Caroline had the opportunity to make that first solo flight in a very special airplane; her Dad’s 100-year-old Curtiss JN-4D Jenny. Caroline's dad Paul Daugherty is the president of the Golden Age Aviation Museum with some 22,000 hours in his logbook. Caroline has been around airplanes her entire life and has flown many hours with her father growing up around the small museum and its grass runway.

The House of Representatives has published initial language to reauthorize funding for the FAA. A move to privatize the ATC system is causing widespread concern among aviation groups and pilots nationwide.
