National Air Pilots Association

Vicky was endorsed by a famous pilot named Freddie Lund. Each person had to be endorsed by another pilot. He was killed in an air race in the year that Vicky got her license. Betty Lund, Freedies wife was also a pilot. The letter was addressed to Vicky at th Roosevelt Field Hotel in Mineola, L.I. New York. I assume that Vicky was staying at the hotel while she took lessons at Roosevelt Field.

Both Betty and Freddie Lund were stunt flyers, flew in races and were barnstormers. I think it was quiet an honor for Vicky to be endorsed by the Lunds. I assume that Vicky was a private pilot or she wouldn’t have been endorsed by the Lunds.
