Girl Set To Make Milwaukee, Wisconsin a Destination On
Her Transcontinental Flight.
Youngest African-American Female To Fly Across The
Milwaukee, Wisconsin-July 8, 2009
Kimberly Anyadike (on-ya-DEE-kay), a fifteen year old girl from
Compton, CA is flying across America as the youngest African
American female to ever accomplish such a feat. She will be
piloting a red-tailed Cessna 170 alongside Captain Ronell Normann
who is serving as the safety pilot on behalf of Air Cargo. Capt.
Normann volunteered his knowledge and expertise to assist Kimberly
on getting to each destination swiftly and safely. Also on board is
General Levi Thornhill, a decorated World War II veteran and member
of the Tuskegee Airmen. The airplane, which happens to be named
after Gen. Thornhill, will be making its way from Compton, CA on
June 29th to Newport News, VA. They are currently en route to
Detroit, Michigan and will be arriving in Milwaukee between 11AM
and 1PM tomorrow.
The trip is intended to be a tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen who
risked their lives for a country that was not willing to initially
give them the credit they deserved. Robin Petgrave, owner of
Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum, stresses the importance of history,
heritage and legacy by educating children about the Tuskegee
Airmen. Kimberly admits much of the trip is to honor the Airmen,
but there are many more prevalent motivating factors here. "When someone tells you that you don't have the
cognitive ability to do something, it makes it that much better to
go out and say that you did it," Says the fifteen year old
Kimberly. Just last year her sister, Kelly, set a world record for
flying four fixed wing planes in a single day. Kimberly hopes that
accomplishments such as these will inspire young people to pursue
their dreams to no avail. The trip has been made possible by
Tomorrow's Aeronautical Museum, which has a program set in place
that provides scholarship and after-school programs for young
at-risk youth. Kimberly has been a part of the Compton
Airport-based program and has been flying since she was 12.
Kimberly will visit with members of the East Coast chapter of TAM
in hopes of inspiring and motivating her fellow students by showing
if she can do it, they can too.
Air Cargo was gracious enough to donate a pilot, fuel, and
lodging along the way at a number of stops in order to aid the
group throughout the process. The trip will have several stops to
allow other Tuskegee Airmen across the country to autograph the
airplane so that their spirit will always fly with the students. We
are delighted to announce that after the trip to DC, Kimberly
Anyadike will be flying to Milwaukee on July 9th where she will be
welcomed and celebrated by Air Cargo. Levi Thornhill will also be
awarded a commemorative certificate for all of his accomplishments.
When thinking of these accomplishments, it is stated best by Air
Cargo's very own Flight Operations Manager, Theodore Prince, "It is
because of the sacrifices of men like Levi Thornhill that we have
the opportunities today to participate fully as Americans. For me
specifically, the opportunities that I have had, both in the
Military and in Aviation are a direct result of the Tuskegee Airmen
and the accomplishments of Levi Thornhill's generation."
ACC has installed a new Phone System.
To better service our customers, business associates and
employees, Air Cargo Carriers recently installed a new
state-of-the-art phone solution. Callers will notice new options to
aid in directing their call and our employees will have many more
tools available to provide a higher level of customer service. Some
of the changes the caller will notice right away are:

extensions. If you were used to calling an ACC employee at Ext.
444, you will now dial 7444). This change allows for a more a more
user friendly Automated Attendant.
- New Dial-by-Name Directory. When in the Automated Attendant,
Dial * to access this feature. Using the alphanumeric buttons on
your phone, punch in the first three letters of the individuals
last name to be connected to your desired contact at ACC.
- New Automated Attendant. We increased the functionality of the
Automated Attendant to ensure the caller will reach the individual
or department they require.
- Calls directed to our Dispatch Department, (Option 1 or
Extension 600) will be recorded for quality assurance and training
purposes. Please take some time to become familiar with our new
Automated Attendant and become familiar with the options and
features it has to offer. Please do not hesitate to contact us if
you have any questions about the new system.

Hurricane Paloma hit Cayman Brac
and Little Cayman early on November 8th as a category 4
storm. Cayman Brac was hit the hardest and over 90% of the
buildings there suffered significant damage. Several local business
owners in the Caymans, in cooperation with a nationally known home
building supply chain, donated generators and chainsaws to the
people of "Le Brac" as the locals there call it. Another prominent
individual in Grand Cayman donated the money to have these supplies
flown from Georgetown, Texas. We delivered the first load of
generators to Cayman Brac on November 12th and flew back to the
The call came a day later for us to pick up and deliver another
load of generators along with some chainsaws. After loading the
cargo in GTU, we made our way down to Grand Cayman to clear customs
inbound, get fuel, and then continued on to Cayman Brac to deliver
the cargo. As we continued to meet local officials on Cayman Brac,
we discovered that they needed our plane and services to ferry much
needed building supplies from Grand Cayman to Cayman Brac.
ACC donated some flight time and fuel to help the Cayman Fire
Department get some Ice and Water shield rolls, Fiber Rock, and
insulation delivered quickly to Cayman Brac so they can begin
repairs to the high school. We also ferried a full load of donated
supplies from local Grand Cayman businesses to Cayman Brac,
including much needed food. The whole experience was extremely
rewarding for me as I've been through several hurricanes myself
while growing up in Louisiana. I've experienced first hand the
damage and hardships caused by these storms and I was honored to be
able to help out.
I wish to pass along to all ACC Employees the heart-felt gratitude
of everyone in the Caymans. We were welcomed like family and
thanked with hugs and home cooked meals. It felt great to be able
to help and it gave me more meaning to the Thanksgiving holidays
