Meet Pepper!

Hi! My name is Autumn Pepper Rhodes. I’m a senior at Cypress Lake High, but I dual enroll at Florida Gulf Coast University. I have been flying for over 5 years and earned my Private Pilot Certificate in March of 2022. I became interested in aviation through the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program, and have been a volunteer with that organization for just over 6 years! I’m a 13 year girl scout and a musical theatre enthusiast. Some of my favorite shows I’ve been a part of have been She Kills Monsters, Rock of Ages, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. I’m a lacrosse goalie, a french hornist, and a music lover. My favorite band is Tally Hall!

My end goal is to be a commercial airline pilot, and maybe even an astronaut if the opportunity arises. I want to help other young people pursue this incredibly fascinating industry, and show young women that the only limit to their sucess is their self-doubt. I know that you can help me achieve that goal!
