Tell us about your trip!
It maybe coming quickly to a non-starter. My landing skills are not coming back as well as I hoped. I may have to hire a ferry pilot. Going from KOKV to L00, VA to CA.
My father is a retired cfii dfe. I learned to fly in the 1969 to 1973 time period from my father with getting my PPL in January 1974. I didn’t have much time to fly after getting my license. I have flown over the years with my father in the right/rear seat, but the last time I flew solo with my license was in 1975 when I flew a Piper Tripacer from Leesburg va to Blacksburg va and return to check out VA Tech as a possible college. Well, today I soloed again. 3 Full stop 3 point landings in the grass in the above airplane.
Is that a Piper PA-15?

I’m back! The last two years I fell out of flying. Like any love affair, it has its ups and down. Life just got in the way.
Yesterday I got my moxie back! Felt that familiar feeling and remembered why I fell for it the first time.
Come visit me at 2B6 Hollister Field near Wilmington, OH. Shoot, Hunt, stay the night...!
Here’s to enjoying fall flying!!! ❤️❤️

Finally getting back in the air tomorrow, I am stoked! Any girls got any good tips for sporadic flyers? My CFI usually has a good agenda for us, but if there's any suggestions from people who have had experience going weeks between lessons, I'd love to have some ideas to bring to the table.
Oh, and this stamp is TOTALLY gonna be my next tattoo lol ... See MoreSee Less

Stalls, slow flight, steep turns to get ready for landings.
When I'm rusty, i have trouble with holding assigned altitude.

I want to thank Ladies Love Taildraggers and Blue River Aviation for the opportunity to visit and fly in Alaska. The trip worked out better than I could have ever imagined. I completed my float plane rating! It was the trip of a lifetime with more than one surprise. I am now engaged <3. I am so grateful for the experience and still awestruck. What a wild and beautiful place to fly. A a big thanks to Judy Birchler, you are such an amazing woman creating a platform for women to bond, have fun and push each other to achieve our dreams. So much love for all of you and happy flying ladies! ... See MoreSee Less

Congratulations on so many counts!!

Great pics, congratulations all the way around !!
Congratulations! You did it! But now I’m curious about the subplot: did you already know this guy or did you find him in the back woods of Alaska or hanging out in a hangar turning a wrench? Not everybody gets a fiancé and a ring when they get their float rating! How’d you get such an upgrade to your trip?
