Biography

Kim Darst, 41, was born and raised in Blairstown, New Jersey. "I am a helicopter pilot by trade but a dog musher by passion. My dogs come from Susan Butcher's kennel. I look forward to bringing my dogs back to their origin. I own and operate a flight school and an airport named Husky Haven in NE Pennsylvania. The flight school consists of three helicopters and seven airplanes. I was the first New Jersean to qualify and enter the Iditarod last year. My favorite part of Iditarod last year was the friends I met and the fans." She is a member of AOPA-Whirley Girls and says her hobby is water skiing.
