Team RAF Staff

Amanda Carbonari
Care and Feeding of RAF Membership Volunteer

Amanda was inspired to pursue her private license after attending EAA Airventure 2015 with three other pilots. After returning from Oshkosh she immediately started lessons, passing her checkride in May 2016. Fast forward to now - her fiancé recently purchased a Cessna 180 and they moved to Wisconsin. They are excited to explore Wisconsin from the air as well as camp at both Two Hearted and Fox Island. She is currently getting her tailwheel endorsement in a Decathlon with the plan of completing spin training and aerobatic training in it afterward.

Missy Martin
Events Promotion and Website Volunteer

A Montana native, Missy Martin has been lucky enough to recently return to her beautiful home state to fly the mighty C-130 Hercules for the Montana Air National Guard. Missy and her boyfriend co-own a 2000 Aviat A-1B Husky and have had a blast flying into the Idaho and Montana backcountry. She says, “being fortunate to live in mountain flying Mecca, the RAF helps combine and protect our love of two worlds; the outdoors and flying!”
