My name is Anna Rusinowski and I’m from Toronto, Ontario. I completed my PPL in 2014 and have been flying recreationally ever since. More recently I have started commercial ground school in hopes of becoming a flight instructor in the next couple of years. I have never had airline aspirations and prefer spending my time in small piston engine aircraft. I have some time in tailwheel aircraft but have not yet solo’d. I am hoping to do so in 2019, it is on my bucket list for the year. I am very active in the aviation community and volunteer a lot of my time to promoting women in aviation. I manage the 99’s Instagram page, and the public relations person for an event called Girls Take Flight and am on the Board of Directors for the Northern Lights Aero Foundation.
So excited to be a part of this group!
Aircraft flown: Cessna 152, Cessna 172, Cessna 177, Piper Pacer, Piper Tripacer, Aeronca Champ, Lake Buccneer, Cessna Birddog L19, Trojan T-28, Piper Warrior,
Dream taildragger: Kitfox
Thoughts on taildragging: As Amy Johnson once said, “I think it is a pity to lose the romantic side of flying and simply to accept it as a means of transport”. Flying taildraggers is aviation in its purest form. I want to fly over southern Africa in a Tigermoth like Robert Redford, the first movie I watched that inspired me to fly.
