CarolAnn is a former manager with a Fortune 500 company.

She 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.

After her mother suffered and died from ALS, she flew around the world in 2003 to raise awareness and donations for ALS. To date, her speaking engagements and book about the flight, Upon Silver Wings, have raised $80,000 for ALS research.

Carol Foy, Spicewood, TX

Carol contributes the speed component to the partnership.

Carol's active interest in flying began when her airline pilot husband bought a Mooney airplane. After several flights, it occurred to her that she should probably learn to land the plane. During the first few lessons, she fell in love with aviation and after two years of flying she acquired her commercial, multi-engine and instrument ratings.

In 1991, she entered the Air Race Classic (ARC), an all female cross country air race. A new passion was born, and in 2006, she won the 2478 mile ARC race.

Carol has recently added her flight instructor's license and multi-engine and instrument instructor ratings to her accomplishments. She is currently introducing students to the joy of flight and is a contract pilot in King Air aircraft and a small jet.
