Frank Ladonne retired to Fort Collins, Colorado, after 37 years as an electrical engineer for Underwriters Laboratories. Frank’s first flying experience was at the age of 16 flying with a friend who was a tow plane pilot for a glider club. He never forgot the dream to one day fly himself. Then “life intervened.” Married, had a daughter, chauffeured her around hither and yon, college tuition (OMG!). When he finally wrote that last college tuition check, he enrolled for his private. He now has his private and instrument rating and a Cessna 172XP, which he and his wife have named Volare! (To fly). Being retired, Frank and his wife fly to an adventure “somewhere” every two weeks.
