Diane Stickle

Director, National Stearman Fly-in


My name is Diane Stickle, and I am a member of the board of directors of the National Stearman Fly-In.

As someone who has always loved airplanes, I jumped at the chance to volunteer at the Fly-In.  The first year (has it really been 20 years ago?),I worked a shift in a retail kiosk just outside of the Stearman Office.  The next year, I worked a couple of shifts in the office. . .and was hooked.  Since then, I spent many years managing the office until becoming a member of the board of directors (five years as president).

After a two-year hiatus, I am back on the board and looking forward to the Virtual 49th National Stearman Fly-In this year and welcoming you to Galesburg in 2021 for the 50th Annual National Stearman Fly-In.

In the meantime,wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands, and fly safe.

Wishing you blue skies and tail winds!
