Friday's Flyer: meet Jonathan, the heart and soul of Kpong Field, Ghana, and Centennial of Women Pilots award winner

When I launched the Centennial of Women Pilots campaign in early 2010, Jonathan was one of the first persons to contact me. He said, "We will introduce 100 girls and women to flying on March 8 for the 100th anniversary of the first woman pilot license."

And they did! It took 4 pilots flying ultra lights all day long to make it happen but it did not phase them out. Some of the girls and women came back the next day and sung to them to thank them.
