I've spent all week packing up/selling out/saying goodbye to Out of the Blue. Although it is bittersweet to close the doors of this business I have loved so much for the last six years, it is also very exciting to be moving on to new adventures.

I have received dozens of emails, phone calls, and visits from people telling me what a great place OOTBA had been for them and how we had impacted their lives in one way or another. I give the credit to all the fantastic people who worked with me for so many years, helping me through my ignorance and occasional naivete. My heart is full with the affection of so many dear friends - customers, employees, fellow pilots.

Many have asked what I plan to do next. I have several different exciting possibilities. I will let you know about them, as I know them.

If you have not signed on to "follow" this blog, please do so so that we can stay "in touch."

Fondly, Cathy


  1. Thank you so much for the chance to fly this past spring as part of the Women in Aviation! My best friend and I had a blast getting to see the world from the air after having completed our scuba certifications and seeing the world from the water. I wish you well in the future!

  2. Cathy, you're the best, and I wish you the best in your new chapter! OOTBA, the staff, instructors, students, unofficial staff (haha), and the regulars enjoying a cup of coffee and smiling faces in the OOTBA "living room," well, it has meant a lot to me over the years.

    I'll be following your blog if I can figure out how (and I do this stuff for a living, go figure).



Please leave a comment. Or email me at I love to hear from you!
