A sad loss to aviation in this country.

Guess we are all moving on .. only met her the once .. did an endorsement around 50 years ago (glider towing Pawnee, perhaps ?). Thoroughly pleasant lady, competent and professional in her manner.

RIP Senja,my first flying instructor at Illawarra flying school in 1967.A nice lady and very patient with a young bloke like me.I always kept an eye on her aviation career over the years.Articles in aviation magazines,TV interviews and programs.A sad day for all who remember a true pioneer aviator.
