Dr. Laura Pogue Earns Multi-Engine Pilot License Rating

Pontiac, Michigan, April 28, 2007 – Dr. Laura A. Pogue, Chief Executive Officer of Strategic Marketing and Financial Resources, Inc., has earned her Multi-Engine Airplane Rating from the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This is an additional rating that is added to the Commercial Pilot, Airplane Single-Engine Land Instrument License she presently holds.

According to Dr. Pogue, “The multi-engine training focuses on flying the airplane with two engines and the engine-out procedures, in the event one of the two airplane engines fail during take-off, cruise, or landing.  We are actually tested on our proficiency in flying on one engine, in preparation for such an emergency.” The Multi-Engine rating also requires testing on a few, new aircraft maneuvers, in addition to the common, major maneuvers.

An aviator for five years, Dr. Pogue plans to obtain her Jet Standards Training, as well. “I love the fact that there is always something new and exciting to learn about airplanes and aviation. I try to convey the importance of continual learning and improvement as a way of life to my students and clients, both inside and outside of the formal classroom environment and to set a good example."
Dr. Pogue’s multi-engine airplane training was conducted in a Beechcraft Baron BE-58 at Sutton Aviation, located in Pontiac, Michigan, and at the Aspen Flying Club, located in Denver, Colorado.
