My mother, Phyllis Woloszyk, was supportive and amazed that I would become a pilot. It was only after I started to fly that she told me she had seen Amelia Earhart as a speaker when she was in college, imagine that! I would fly to my hometown, Posen, which is a small town in Northern Michigan, and fly over my parents’ home so she could see me "in the air". She was not interested in getting into the 152! When I bought my Mooney, the tail number was changed to N102PL, my birthdate, October 2 and my parents’ names, Phyllis and Louis Woloszyk, in honor of my parents.
