Graduating with honors, she immediately started training as an Operating Room Nurse. For the next 13 years, (7 in management), Kay gained tremendous knowledge and experience in healthcare, finances and interpersonal relations with many levels. Shortly after Kay came to Carson City, Nevada as the Director of Surgery at Carson Tahoe Hospital in 1986, she met and married Hale Bennett. Her life took an entirely new direction. She became a licensed pilot. In 1988 Kay ran for political office and was elected to the Carson City Board of Supervisors.

Kay Bennett Bio
Although the airport was shut down after the war, Bennett remembered the desert airstrip. More than 40 years later, Hale Bennett and his wife Kay, both private pilots, rediscovered the abandoned airfiled. Although the runway was crumbling and weedy after so many years, they recognized the value of the open approach and level land. Together they have built an airport to be proud of. Hale passed on March 9, 2014 - he was 93 years old. At an age when many Americans are relaxing in retirement Hale and Kay Bennett decided to open an airport. "It isn't just kids who things like that" said Hale, who just turned 93, about the visionary project. The couple met while serving on the Carson-Tahoe Hospital (now Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center) board of directors. Kay was a nursing supervisor at the hospital and member of the Carson City Board of Supervisors. She was appointed to represent the city on the hospital board. Hale, retired director of the State Division of Data Processing, was chairman of the board. They celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2013. Together, they worked toward improving the community. In 1989, they heard about an economic development project in Fallon and decided to drive east on U.S. 50 to take a look. Kay Bennett said that Hale turned off U.S. 50 and down a rough road. A new pilot at the time, Kay gradually realized that they were on an old runway. Hale informed me that he had landed a B-29 on this strip. That was during World War II, during which Hale was a bomber pilot with the 553rd Squadron. He flew 68 combat missions over Europe, including two on D-Day. After the war, he helped train pilots. In 1945, he was bound for Reno Stead Airport in a B-29 with a crew he was training, but an accident had closed that airport. He was diverted to the Lahontan Airstrip, as it was known then. Fast forward 44 years, and "There was nothing here except a runway that had almost evaporated" Hale said. They both recognized the potential buried under the weeds, and the Silver Springs Airport took root. "What we both saw right away was the open approach", Kay Bennett said. Kay Bennett, now 77, admitted that starting an airport was a daunting task, but together they brought political strength, creativity and knowledge to the project.

At an age when most Americans are relaxing in retirement, Hale and Kay Bennett decided to open an airport.
Kay was a nursing supervisor at the hospital and member of the Carson City Board of Supervisors. She was appointed to represent the city on the hospital board. Kay said that on the way out Hale turned off Highway 50 and down a rough old road. A new pilot at the time, Kay gradually realized they were on an old runway. "Hale informed me that he had landed a B-29 on this strip," Kay told the Nevada Appeal (http://bit.ly/XkS60y). "What we both saw right away was the open approach," Kay said. Kay, now 77, admitted that starting an airport was a daunting task, but together they brought political strength, creativity and knowledge to the project. "Yes, it's tremendously challenging" she said. Doing it "was more about the challenge and the legacy; being able to develop a significant asset." To date, $6.5 million in capital improvements in the area are due to the private/public partnership needed to develop the airport, she said. "Kay and I did something that isn't done regularly. ... Nowadays Kay takes care of most of job of managing the airport. "He's still very much engaged in the day-to-day activities and what's going on. With complex issues, he's a sounding board," she said. "He certainly enabled me to carry this on." It will take a couple more years before the airport is self-sustaining, she said. "It's a very interesting project," Kay said.
