May 2012 Aune Price (Illinois)
Aune Price is based at 06C,Â Schaumburg Regional Airport, Chicago/Schaumburg, Illinois.
Greetings fellow lady taildraggers. I am thrilled to have found this site! Â I’m the proud owner of a 1948 Stinson 108-3 which my father restored in Hawaii when I was 4 years old. Â When I was about 32, my father decided to sell the plane and trade it in for a J-3 Cub.
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. Â 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. Â I would love to connect with folks – please drop me an email.
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. Â Depending on how many visitors we get this year, you may be sleeping on the floor but you are welcome to join us. Â 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.
