The California Pilots Association would like to welcome Carol Hudak, as the newly appointed Board of Directors Secretary. A California native Carol has lived in Southern California all her life. Carol has two grown sons and a three year old grandson. She manages the operations of a commercial lending group in Newport Beach. Carol says ?I got into flying when I took my first ride in a small airplane, going up and doing aerobatics in a Robin. I fell in love with it, got my license a couple of years ago and, after just enjoying flying, I?m ready to get serious about my instrument rating. My goal is to get my CFII. I also belong to AOPA and EAA, as well as being Treasurer of the Long Beach 99s. My interests include all things aviation related, including air shows, Expos and, of course AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI. I?m also an avid reader and gardener, as well as spending time with family and friends doing just whatever.?
