I've been signed up for years, but never had the opportunity for a mission until last weekend.
My mission was to escort Dixie & the Dixie Cups from Quincy, FL to Seminole, FL (225sm)
Dixie has one bad eye, heartworm & was living under a shed with her 6 puppies. I delivered her to a rescue.
Dixie is a good mother, but an escape artist. I placed the puppies on the right seat & Dixie in the kennel in the rear baggage area.
I went into the FBO before departure. When I returned, Dixie had escaped the RV. I placed her back in & secured the kennel better.
Well, 20 minutes into the 75 minute flight, out comes Dixie.
She was a good girl & came out to check on her pups & then went back to rest on the top of her kennel to enjoy the view.
I delivered them all to their final destination without issues.
It was very rewarding & I'm looking forward to the next mission.
