“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

Katie Pribyl

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

Debbie Cheney

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, Retractable Midget Mustang

Arty Trost

I really enjoy the 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

“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

Theresa Berthelsdorf

Thank you for all you do for women in aviation. You are an inspiration for us all!! Debbie Cheney, Cessna 140, Flabob Airport

Nancy Pierce

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
