Abby Johnson (New York)

Abby Johnson is based at NY50, Johnson Airport, Perth, New York.

This is the only pic I have with my husband Chris & the L-16A we are restoring

Hi!  My name is Abby Johnson, I’m a 29 years old and from upstate NY who is learning to fly.  My husband has been a pilot for 20+ years and we have a Meyers OTW, Piper Arrow and newest and greatest L-16A! We have re-done the L-16A together and that is what I will continue and finish my instruction in.

L16A, a work in process

I am also in PA school and have a 2-month old, so my progress is slow on my license…hoping to get it finished next fall.  The plane is almost completed now and has the old military paint scheme.

We rib-stitched both wings on this plane and this was taken after they were finished! 

There are so few women pilots and this website is an inspiration!  Keep rocking the skies ladies!!!

Thanks for such a great website/community!

    I’m in Wyoming and got a PA18 a little over a year ago. Had my biggest flying year ever, with this fun airplane, 220 hours.

    I love that L-16. How fun! I suppose you will be taking it to lots of airshows when it’s ready to fly. Keep us updated. It looks like a winner.
