Congrats Rosie!

Doug should make up a badge to put next to your "signature" when someone hits a milestone...1000, 2000, 3000,...etc...

Like the military used to have 1000 hour patches.

It could be a VAF badge of "motivation" of sorts!

I hit 4000 hours last week....(or so it feels like these days)... In that cubical prison of work. It is really cramping my style as I slide past the 225 hr club in my 4 yr old -8

If you use an average speed of 160mph that is over 640,000 miles. Wow!

Or roughly 25 times around the earth!

Great job Rosie. AT my current rate of flying, in 15 years my RV will only have about half that. Awesome Job.
