King School 172 Winner Announced


Rhonda Doyle, of Ridgway, Colo., is this year’s winner of the King Schools’ Future of Flight airplane sweepstakes and recently picked up her G1000-equipped Cessna 172S at Montgomery Field in San Diego. Doyle, a commercial pilot who runs the snowboard school at Telluride Ski Resort, was taking some lessons of her own when she got the news. “I was sitting at my desk, studying for my Instrument Rating, and watching John King on my computer, when suddenly the phone rang and there he was on the line,” she said. ” I was a little confused at first, so when he told me that I had won I didn’t believe it. But, when Martha joined in the conversation, I knew it was for real!”

The WAAS-enabled panel and GFC700 autopilot should come in handy in the Colorado mountains as Doyle pursues her goal of becoming a tour pilot. “Rhonda is a wonderful winner and we are thrilled that this airplane will help her to realize her flying dreams,” said John King.
