Greetings fellow lady taildraggers. I am thrilled to have found this site!  I’m the proud owner of a 1948 Stinson 108-3 which my father restored in Hawaii when I was 4 years old.  When I was about 32, my father decided to sell the plane and trade it in for a J-3 Cub.

Stinson N529C

It would have broken my heart to see the plane go – so – I commuted from Seattle, WA to Naples, NY until I soloed in the Stinson, and then purchased it from my father, flew it out to Seattle, got my license, and have flown and loved it ever since.  I relocated to the Chicago area in 2006 and am now married with a 2+ year old son who regularly begs to wake up ‘Charlie’ (N529C) so we can fly.  I would love to connect with folks – please drop me an email.

N529C,  “Charlie”

We live about 1 1/2 hours flying time south of OshKosh and regularly have our taildragger friends stop for a meal and shower enroute to the show.  Depending on how many visitors we get this year, you may be sleeping on the floor but you are welcome to join us.  You’ll need Mode-C (or a call ahead to the O’Hare Flight Center) to get in under the 30NM veil but land at Schaumburg Regional (06C; no tower) and we’ll come get you.

Regards,

Aune H. Price
