My wife's grandfather had a flying circus, complete with female wing-walker back in the 20s. I've got some 5x7 glass photographic plates with pictures of them.

When you finish your tailwheel endorsement a day early and you say you've never been in a biplane...well, we just go borrow one and fly. Congratulations to LLT Scholarship recipient Cindy Ferek on a job well done! ... See MoreSee Less

Oh man, I won’t be home yet!! Keep me in mind for the next event!❤️

Are they on the sectional?

In this world filled with chaos and turmoil, my wife, Janet, decided to travel back in time in our Cessna 195. With its oil dripping, smoke belching burnt oil smell and unique galloping radial engine, and dressed in seamed silk stockings, polka dot dress and period hat, she said her visit to the slow, carefree days of the 1950's was wonderful. If only for an hour or so. ... See MoreSee Less

Hey ladies! My fiancé and I (Columbus Ohio pilots) are flying a Cessna 150 (sad it’s not a tail dragger this time) from Jacksonville FL to Bloomington IL. Looking for recommendations on cool places to stop for fuel, breaks, food, overnight, even cool touristy things along the way in GA, TN, KY, etc. Thank you!! ... See MoreSee Less

KFFC (Falcon Field) has the Commemorative Air Force Dixie wing. They have a neat hangar and will be happy to give a tour. It looks like it’s right along your route 😊

Rome, GA (KRMG) is a great stop. Cool little airport and right nearby is Sam's Burger Deli (with a VW bus-plane and the building is made of jet parts!)

GA2! Peach State Aerodrome for an awesome lunch at Barnstormer's Grill!

Gotta be Peach State. Great stop for food that you literally taxi to AND cheap gas! You’ll love it.

We’re having a CubCrafters fly-in at High Valley resort this weekend. GA87. Drop in to see us in the beautiful Smoky Mountains!

Swing by SAV and ask for the graveyard tour...the taxiway north of 10/28...a couple of gravestones are in the taxiway!

What on earth is that !??????😂

Good to see our flying friends again

The new hangers are being constructed at the field

Testimonials

Lisa Kienholz

“The Ladies Love Taildraggers website and Facebook page kept me going whilst I was working on my tailwheel endorsement in my Luscombe.  I had just earned my Private Pilot’s License when my mother and brother both took ill. Reading the posts was the encouragement I needed to keep at it.   It is so great to share flying adventures with like minded ladies!” Lisa Kienholz, Luscombe 8E, N2660K

Katie Pribyl

“I love how Ladies Love Taildraggers brings together accomplished, novice and even aspiring female taildragger pilots. We all have something to learn from and share with one another. This truly is a special group and I’m so honored to be a part of it.” Katie Pribyl, Cessna 180, N7622A

Debbie Cheney

“Thank you for all you do for women in aviation. You are an inspiration for us all!!” Debbie Cheney

Arty Trost

“I really enjoy the ladieslovetaildraggers.com website. Reading about other female pilots, the ability to find places to stay – and new friends – when traveling via my own taildragger…it’s a great website. The website speaks for itself!”Arty Trost, Talon Typhoon, Oregon

Andrea Eldridge

“Thank you, Judy Birchler, for creating a haven which asks nothing from its members but that you support and celebrate your fellow lady tailwheel pilots! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that group?!”  Andrea Eldridge, California

Theresa Berthelsdorf

 “I wish this site had been around back in the 80s and 90s when I was flying. It was hard to find other lady taildragger pilots and stay connected. Ladies Love Taildraggers is a fun and vibrant group, and even though I don’t fly any longer, I support their mission wholeheartedly!”  Theresa Berthelsdorf, N89658

Nancy Pierce

“This is a terrific group of ladies.  I so enjoy keeping up on FaceBook and am appreciative of the support given to old, new and aspiring pilots. I REALLY love my taildragger.” Nancy Pierce, Midget Mustang
