Montaine Mallet (05/27/2000)


Montaine began to fly while attending aeronautical engineering school at the age of 19, following a desire sparked reading the lives of the aviation pioneers such as Guillaumet, St. Exupery, Mermoz and others. In 1972, with a degree in engineering, she joined Avions Mudry as well. In her free time, she began studying aerobatics with Daniel and started to compete in the Spring of 1973. She was sent with Daniel to the United States as a technical adviser and to help demonstrate the CAP 10B to potential customers. Montaine had well over 8,000 hours of flight time, of which over 3,000 had been flown performing aerobatics.

My husband and I flew with Danny &, Montaine during their first years here in the states. In fact, we actually spent our honeymoon with them at Sky Acres airport learning the CAP-10B in 1976, and even spent a night with them when the heater in our motorhome failed. We (all of us flying the CAP10's at Sky Acres) became a huge family...I treasure the pictures of all of us at my wedding. Our son is named Daniel...need I say more? It was with Danny &, Montaine's encouragement that we started IAC Chapter 52, Whifferdil, Ltd. (My husband was the charter President &, I the Secretary) and entered into the wonderful world of aerobatic competition. They were two of the greatest people we ever had the privilege of knowning and learning from. We looked forward to every lesson....they are sorely missed!

Montaine,
Thank you for taking the time to share your expertise (and for the CAP10 taxi ride) with a young highschool aviation and space enthusiast! You made a difference!

I had the pleasure of meeting them when Iwas taking flying lessons at Duchess airport. They were quite a couple. They will be missed.

I flew with Montaine doing aerobatics training in Dutchess County airport. She was a tough instructor who believed ",if you can fly one aircraft, you can fly them all.", I had some difficulty with the cap10. She got me through it, and scared me stiff at times! I always admired her and was saddened to hear of their accident. I had always thought I would go to Florida and fly with her again. She was truly a gifted pilot. She just loved the air and to make the machine do what she wanted. The industry and all of us, will be at a loss without them!!

I was privileged to call Daniel and Moutaine my friends during their stay at Dutchess County. I had several lessons from Montaine in the CAP 10 that made me a better pilot and instructor. Most of the time scared stiff! Laissez le bon temps rouler. RIP
