Andrea Nichols (North Carolina)

Andrea Nichols is based at (KACZ) Henderson Field Airport, Wallace, North Carolina.

This is the Aeronca I’m currently doing my flight training in.It’s a 1942 Aeronca L-3 formerly used as a trainer for the military.

I’m new to flying. Currently I’m completing ground school and just starting the flight training portion. I’m working on my sport pilot license, and the plane I’m flying happens to be a taildragger!
There are 3 career pilots in my family, none of which can fly taildraggers, so it’s neat to be getting an endorsement they won’t have!

    Andrea, please send a message for me; I am having a very difficult time finding a tailwheel instructor in NC. I am in Madison NC and I am not opposed to driving to Hendersonville! I’ve gone through ground school and passed the FAA written for sport pilot, just having a very hard time finding an instructor whose insurance will cover a student pilot solo in a taildragger. This is the only kind of plane I ever want to fly.

    Hi Andrea!!

    You Go Girl! Get that tailwheel ticket and you’ll be the hotest ticket around! You know they always say — you can fly just about anything if you know how to fly a taildragger! 🙂

    Welcome to the group!
