I trained at Rose Aviation. Jean gave me my check ride in '72. They had a full A&P facility, ground school and rentals. Those were good times and a fun airport to fly out of.

I Took My Instrument Checkride With Jean

I just stumbled on this string researching Rose Aviation, looking for old pics. I learned to fly at Rose in 1970, 48 years ago. I am still flying professionally today which is a true miracle...

I've wondered what happened to Jean, Rex, Art Olsen, Linda, Don Petersen, Claude Bennet (what a great guy!!). Hopefully someone will have some answers.

Thx

re: I Took My Instrument Checkride With Jean

Hello, I came across this website today trying to find out what happened to Rose Aviation at Hawthorne Airport and saw your post. My name is Linda Silvertooth, I am the Linda you mentioned in your post. I worked at Rose from 1977-1981 and have kept in touch with several other friends from those days (Kathy Hesse, Kevin Clover). I knew Jean as the former owner and and as an FAA Pilot Examiner, Art was the owner at the time I was there. Jean passed away in the early 80’s and Art passed away in 2018. I know Claude is gone also but I don’t remember when he passed. I took several check rides from both Jean and Claude…..great people!! I saw Don Pedersen in 2013 at a Rose reunion, he was the Chief of Police for Culver City at that time, but I think he has retired. Were you at Rose Aviation during those years? I went on to work for the FAA for over 35 years and retired in 2020. It was a great time during those days at Rose! Linda

ROSE AVIATION

I worked for Rose Aviation in 1960 to 1962 as a flight instructor. I attained all of my ratings from Jean and Rex and they were kind enough to give me a job. I went to work for Zantop in 1962 and was hired by Delta Airlines in 1963. I lost track of Jean and Rex but have been able to access Jeans past as a WASP during WWII. She was injured in a Piper Apache accident in about 1984 and later died of a blood clot as a result of her injuries. I can't find any reference of Rex. Ken Chirhart, kchirhart@ma.rr.com
