Anne has numerous accomplishments in the field of aviation, and has been active in the Ninety-nines, serving as Vice Governor of the New England Section, and was named “Pilot of the Year” by the New England Section in 1992.

The Jeanne Ohnemus / Cynthia Hurvitz Scholarship

A member of The Ninety-Nines since 1974, Jeanne Ohnemus earned her PPL, CPL and her IFR and Multi-Engine ratings. She flew the Piper Comanche 250 as well as the 260B, making many trips to the Bahamas, a special trip to Alaska, and another to St. Martin’s.
In 2019 the FAA presented Jeanne with the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award for 50 years of safe flying.
Jeanne’s daughter Cynthia Hurvitz earned her PPL and primarily flew the Comanche 250 from the KBED area. Her daughter Dianne has had initial flying lessons at KLWV and may return when her teaching commitments are fewer. Cynthia resides in Connecticut, but many of her family live in California.
