In 1986 the first Tailwinds, Catalog of the Skies, was founded on a kitchen table in the Northwest Chicago suburbs by Marion Jayne and her daughter Nancy Jayne Palozola. Marion, an avid aviator and air racer, was the thirteenth woman to earn her Airline Transport Pilot Rating (ATP), which is the highest level of aircraft pilot license. Air Racing was her passion and along with Nancy and sister Pat, she won more cross country air races than any other pilot, male or female.
