Jul 2018 Arlene Farrell (New Jersey)
Arlene Farrell is based atÂ C01 Southern Cross Airport,Â Williamstown, New Jersey.
I got my pilots license 11 years ago. Â My Dad had an Aeronca Champ when I was around 11 years old. Â Soon after he decided to tear it apart and recover it. Â Well, it sat in our garage ever since. Â In 1993, a friend of mine said he would recover it. Â He lived in Fla. so we trailered there. Â Two years later he passed away, so we went and brought it back to N.J. Another year passed until we found someone else to recover it. Â It was finished in late 2000.

Then came trying to find someone to teach me how to fly it. Â Early 2001 I started my training. Â Then we were grounded by 9/11. Â Finally in Aug. 2006 I got my license. Â It was well worth the wait. Â I had a lot of my training in a 172. Â There is nothing like a taildragger for the fun of pure flying. Â Everytime I go up I can’t help but smile.
