Scouting in Aviation

Lt. Col. (Ret.) William Wardwell

Wardwell’s career as an aviator in the service of his country in missions that spanned the globe.

Flying With Poodles

Karen Morss

Local aviator Karen Morss grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia and took her first airplane ride with her father when she was eight years old.  On ride convinced her that aviation was a beautiful way to see the world.  Karen has enjoyed a wide-ranging career, from founding her own business to cultivating orchards of Meyer lemons.  In between she earned her pilot certificate, bought an airstrip, and founded a flight school—all accompanied by her flying poodles!  Today Karen writes children’s books, including “Flying Poodles—A Christmas Story”.  Karen describes her experiences as an aviator, author and businesswoman in an inspirational presentation as she continues to explore new vistas.
