Love At First Flight

September 10th, 2007

Many Camillus young people know Andy and Peggy Matlow, as Falcon Ridge hosts and longtime Town Shop volunteers and friends. Recently, there was a newpaper story about them and their passion for aviation.

Lovebirds Andy and Peggy Matlow literally took flight when the newly licensed airplane pilots recently flew together for the first time.

The Matlows had never previously flown together because only licensed pilots can transport passengers. So, while the two had spent hours together studying their aeronautical lessons, they had never had the opportunity to observe each other in action.

Prior to their marriage eight years ago, Peggy had presented Andy with a three-page, single-spaced list of the qualities she was looking for in a husband. Andy met all of the criteria—including being a pianist and an excellent cook—except for one: he was not a pilot.

“I liked the idea of flying, but I didn’t feel I had a natural propensity for it,” Andy said.
