Helen Melborn is the wife of Bryan Melborn and is a welcoming force in the Kolb family atmosphere. She is an outstanding photographer and enjoys photographing aircraft. Most of the pictures on this web site were taken by her. "I enjoy being around the Kolb builders as they have so much excitement when building their planes," says Helen. "We become a part of their family as much as they become part of the Kolb family."
