Meet Jeannie Rose
“I remember when I was 7 years old, I was reading a comic book underneath an
apple tree at my grandmother’s house. I looked up and saw a squadron of airplanes
flying overhead, and at that moment I knew I was going to be a pilot.”
Jeannie went on to become a teacher, computer systems analyst, and real estate
broker. During those years, she got her private, instrument, and single/multi commercial
certificates. It was through her husband, Peter, that Jeannie was introduced to EAA.
“Peter and I went to AirVenture in the ‘90s. He wanted me to experience it. I loved
the aerobatics, but what impressed me the most was the camaraderie and the main
commonality of interest: aviation.
“I think the best part is the fascinating people I meet. Being a member has allowed
me to do the things I do now because I am in EAA’s aviation loop.” Jeanne actively
engages in the Gathering of Eagles gala. “I’ve come to know so many people through
this event. We all have the same goal: encouraging our youth to be involved in
aviation.” The Young Eagles program is very important to Jeannie. “That is a passion for
me! The impact that the program has had on our kids today is huge. I’m doing what I
can to help raise money for those programs.”
Jeannie and her husband Peter made it a point to do good things with their airplane.
“We flew several volunteer pilot missions providing free transportation for people needing
medical treatment and, yes, even transportation for rescued greyhounds. On one trip,
we put two dogs in the modified baggage area. We thought we had them securely
fastened. One got loose as we departed; the greyhound snuggled up to Peter and gave
him a big lick on the neck. And, yes, we turned back and buckled him in again!”
Why Jeannie reads Sport Aviation
“One thing that I love is Sport Aviation’s new format. I like the texture of the paper
and magazine’s physical size. Every single article is uniquely different, something for
everyone’s interest. Terrific magazine!”
