Lacey grew up in rural southern Iowa where she became a horse trainer as a young adult. For work, she travelled to Pittsburgh, PA for several years, then to North Carolina and eventually to Florida. Traveling to her far-flung clients led to the idea of learning to fly! She was soon hired at the local FBO, and was to promoted to customer service manager and later to supervisor.

 

Lacey's personal flight instructor insisted she get involved in the aviation community so she attended an EAA meeting where she met Faith. Their acquaintance quickly developed into a strong bond of friendship and support, which they felt greatly aided their progress as pilots. Seeing the need for others to have this kind of support inspired them to open the flight school. Lacey continues to work on additional ratings and enjoys hosting events for the local aviation community.
