Arty Trost http://www.lessonsfromtheedge.com/ As the only female long-distance ultralight pilot in the United States, Arty Trost knows about dealing with risk, fear, and perceived limits. Ultralight aircraft are often called lawnchairs with wings and a chainsaw engine. For almost two decades Arty has pushed the perceived limits of ultralight flying. She has flown ultralights throughout the United States as well as overseas - in South Korea, Israel, Puerto Rico and Italy. Arty and her ultralight adventures were featured on National Public Radio in August, 2003. Stories about her long distance flights have been published in newspapers and several national magazines.
